Feb 8 2012 - 2:41am

Jake Gyllenhaal [1] touched down in Germany yesterday and got a warm welcome from fans. He was met inside Tegel airport by Berlin Film Festival's director, Dieter Kosslick, who presented him with a bouquet of fresh flowers. Jake's in town participating in this year's festival and he's been appointed to the competition judging panel. He arrived in Europe late last week and spent a few days in London exploring the city and hanging out with friends. It wasn't an entirely work free visit though, since Jake made a cameo in The Shoes' upcoming music video "Time to Dance." Jake has popped up in music videos in the past, like in 2010 when he played a drunk tennis pro for Vampire Weekend's "Giving Up The Gun" [2].
