While there are ways to get close to the look using a plugin such as Red Giant ToonIt:

...this appears to have been done by shooting or capturing the reference video, then rotoscoping with pencil and markers (or possibly in Photoshop with the appropriate brushes), frame by frame, then editing the project, adding VO and music. There's no simple, one click solution - it's a lot of work.

Joe is correct, and I'm not suggesting that the Cartoon effect is adequate by itself in all cases, but you can get a result that is similar (and maybe good enough for your current needs) using the Cartoon effect.

It seems to me that these these are mostly hand drawn elements and animated using a looping turbulent displace effect so that the lines wiggle between frames.

There is also a texture that looks like it loops on top of everything. Maybe a fractal noise could help with that or create these in photoshop and overlay them on top of your footage.
