From multidisciplinary art and film directors Ben&Julia (Benoit Créac’h & Julia Gaudard), “Cookie Jar” is their 7th music video. This follows on from German superstar Nena's “Lieder von Früher" and 4th Season Anthem “Pancake and Syrup” for the popular Nickelodeon TV show “Yo Gabba Gabba” featuring Biz Markie.
You would be forgiven for thinking you're watching a surreal 80s-influenced gem without a plot exactly.
“Cookie Jar” tells the story of the Cookie Girls “Shannon” and her sister “Krystal” and their attraction for Jake The Rapper’s little friend: “Young Belly”. While the two are fascinated by this little fella, they fall into the trap and put their hands in the Cookie Jar. Different morals come to mind when thinking of this story if curiosity can be a sign of intelligence, you might loose a hand or two, is one of them."
If you pay attention you'll notice a hand or two is lost along the way.
Ben&Julia are currently collaborating on creative projects to make this world a better place.
I can only imagine what these two might accomplish if they set their imaginations towards ill.
