This ultra zany, glitter art-heavy video for Traffic Signs & Jake The Rapper's track Cookie Jar could only come from the delightfully warped imaginations of eccentric Berlin-based duo Ben & Julia, those art-directors who specialise in all things sparkly, bright coloured, animated and off-beat.

"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," explain Ben & Julia. "While the two are fascinated by this little fella, they fall into the trap and put their hands in the Cookie Jar..."
