Watch: The New Video from MISTA COOKIE JAR and THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS (one year in-the-making)!

Written by

"[This video] took us a year to make. Really took our time with it, made sure it came it out just right," says Kindie Rock All-Star MISTA COOKIE JAR about "Call Me Mista Cookie Jar," the new music video for his namesake song by MISTA COOKIE JAR & THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS. Starting off in black and white before opening up a colorful and magical world at the 43-second mark, the new clip was just released, and you can get your first-look at it right now, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

"It's a silent film/stop motion piece inspired by a time when photography and moving pictures were young and magic was fueled by the world's innocence. The Missis & I and our roller skating homegirl created all the art for it, each drawing, cut out every photograph, animated every frame, made our own paper-- even made a Buster Keaton hat from scratch. Visually and story-wise, it's a new realm for the Cookie Jar universe." Mista Cookie Jar

"Call Me Mista Cookie Jar" comes from the excellent 2012 album, ULTRAMAGNETIC LOVE REVOLUTION. Get that and 2009's THE LOVE BUBBLE via (my affiliate), Amazon:
