joey the dog, joey the dog, joey the dog, joey the doGG...OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO!

To all Love Bubble friends, family, and Chocolate Chips,

February 2nd is here, boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen. Halfway between winter solstice and spring equinox in the northern hemisphere. What we now call Groundhog’s Day. Its James Joyce’s birthday. Farrah Fawcett’s birthday. And my father’s birthday (Happy Birthday Papa...!) THIS February 2nd however, is an extra special day in lovely Love Bubble town because...yes indeed, we have for you, right here, for the first time....THE official, JOEY THE DOGG MUSIC VIDEO!!!!

Joey the Dogg is the 3rd official music video from the family band, Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips. Filmed at Loveship Bubbletron (the Chocolate Chips backyard) on a High-8 video camcorder, in front of a homemade green screen, Joey the Dogg features 6 year old, Lucas! as Joey the Dogg. The character was invented when Lucas was 4 in a game of "pretend" and has since inspired this Chocolate Chip anthem. Joey's "a little puppy" with a "really big heart" who can "bark AND talk." The video is Mista Cookie Jar's directorial debut featuring original animation and costume design from the Love Bubble family. Joey the Dogg is the 2nd track off of Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips' debut album, The Love Bubble which can be purchased at Itunes, Amazon, Blacklava, & CDBaby:

  1. So sweet!! That totally made me cry!!! Maddy says, "That was so awesome. Play it again and again!" Ethan says, "Tell Lucas that was so cool." We can't wait to see you all again! When is the next cd coming out? Loved the colors, the music, the smiling faces, and the love I could feel coming right at me through the screen. Can't wait to show my students tomorrow.
