I want to know how they made the jeans do that.

There's probably 4 or 5 ways to do it, ranging from CGI (i.e. no real jeans were rolling down the street), to some mechanicals - like a semi-rigid framework in the jeans, with an invisible nylon cord, that has a sliding mechanism (when it gets to the bottom, it slides to the top, and repeats) - you pull on it, and the back end raises up, and then, when the back end becomes the front end, the cord shifts to the back, and you repeat the motion. Also, it could be a cylinder, that the jeans are in, and it is hidden by CGI in post.

That flip-flop movement looks to me like they're being pulled by strings top and bottom. As Allan says, it's easy enough to erase the "dirty work" nowadays.
