  • is this a criminal minds episode?

  • More people need to talk about this video like wtf was toms idea for this video “ok guys ya know the song I made about weed or my divorced wife or some shit I don’t remember, for the music video I’ll steal a dead girl, dance with her and Yeet her in an ocean” “fuckin brilliant dude”

  • Retroauditing some tomP tonight~~~
    Know the song well, but never saw the video before~~~~~~
    Didn't recognize "back in the day" the obvious sonic "tip of the hat" to Neil Young~~~
    And was that the (then-unknown) great Doug Jones as the other mortician?

  • go on a bike ride

  • Euro Truck Simulator 2 Radio Rocks

  • Muy encantador 🙄

  • Mary Jane's Next To Last Dance partner swears he left her by the Hazard river.

  • "The song is about drug use." No, the song is about some SICKO dancing with a f**ing CORPSE.

  • TFW an Oscar winner says your music video is "the coolest thing she's ever done."

  • The Musical: Janie, who had a gun, shot Mary Jane during her next-to-last-dance, with Richard, who swore he left her by the river. Mary Jane's corpse is then stolen by city Morgue supervisor Tom, who takes her to a secluded place for one last dance. Mary Jane then wakes up, she and Tom dance into the sunset to Donna Summer's "Last Dance."

  • Anyone else think this song is about heroin?

  • A bit Carl Tanzler-ish!

  • Sounds like Dani california

  • This song makes me want to smoke a joint

  • Good song from one of the best decades of music!1990's as well as 1980's and 1970's👍🏾👍🏾!!!

  • Black Bandana, Sweet Louisiana

    Dancing with MJ in the state of Indiana…

  • Umm, this is wierd!

  • A great variation to this video would be a harmonica player using his last breath to play what you hear here.

  • All that is missing is the JOKER doing this dance. Batman movie (1989)

  • This music video is awesome! I would watch this music video on VH1 as a child and it would always creep me out! Here we are in 2019, so sad how fast time passes ❤️

  • *66

  • Tom Petty changed my fucking life!!!!!!!!

  • Proud to be named Mary Jane!

  • Easy to know where RHCP found their inspiration…

  • This video is EERIE on so many levels with references to DRUG USE ( as it was done BEFORE attempts to decriminalize marijuana -cannabis – hemp ) , NECROPHILIA ( but you might steal Kim Bassingers body too if you saw it in the morgue ) DEPRESSION, PROSTITUTION , and IRONY ( being that Petty who worked in a morgue is DEAD ) But it's a outstanding song .

  • Reminds of Norman Bates in the t.v. series Bates Motel.

  • Vc pode até pensar que é Bob Dilan e Beatles cantando, mas não, é essa fera ai

  • idk maybe they used each other? he used her to feel like someone is in his life, and she used him to get out of the morgue?

  • Shut up with your analysis fuck heads we just love Tom Petty

  • I was on the run when this came out wow time flies!

  • Porn for necrophiliacs

  • is she really dead

  • Dani california?

  • I'd love to see a Deepfake of this video with Saville's face.

  • I remember watching this when it first came out with my dad and being scared at the end when her eyes open in the water

  • R I P

  • This should have been the theme song from Dexter or the episode where he tosses his sister into the ocean.

  • I last dance with Mary Jane a reference to marijuana he says last time to kill the pain just curious?

  • bless Tom I miss him so much

  • Makabra……

  • Anyone else hearing Dani California by RHCP

  • Tom🤕😣 we all miss you rest easy man 👼

  • I wish this song was about weed and not dead bodies

  • 5.4 k tin eared offended sjw's we need to kill it before it spreads..

  • ca-li-fornia, rest in peace

  • Not loud enough

  • WTF was this video I am never gonna listen to this music the same way again

  • I like Tom Petty,but this is one damn weird video!!!!!!!!!2019

  • So our Biology instructor had us name our favorite plant!! One guy said Robert Plant and another said Mary Jane!!

    The Mary Jane guy got in trouble!! Wonder why!!😂

  • who watching in 2019?

  • Dinner with the dead

  • RIP Tom

  • TAKE OFF THAT PARTY DRESS!!! 🤣

  • Petty fan and listener from birth!! From womb to tomb Petty fan!

  • If rap had real instruments.

  • Tommy. YOU FUcking slug. did you really think we did not see what you just did?

  • Walkers death stab instead of my own marriage and kids not what i expected in this life, how rude

  • VIDEO is VERY macabre,now that he is DEAD.
    I wonder if he thought of this as he died….yech..

  • My favorite music video when I was six years old. Also, that body wouldn't be limb like that after at least four hours of being dead. That lady would have rigor mortis by then. 🙂

  • The lyrics tell me that the song is about marijuana, but the video tells me that it's about necrophilia. Which one is it!?

  • What????? – NO!!! – we are losing enough talent including Tom Petty without being reminded in this unsavoury way! My feelings only!!!

  • This video is NOTHING like the images those lyrics had put in my mind. I'll try to forget it. But, obviously, the song and lyrics are simply incredible.

  • 0:11 Darius Rucker?

  • Knowing what we know now, there are really no words to describe how I feel, except total disgust and deceit. Too much reality to Laurel Canyon, Epstein Island…….

  • Thanks Tom!🎩💘🎸🎶✌️💓

  • Love the song dislike the video a lot. It smacks of necrophilia.

  • Johnny's in the basement mixing up the medicine, I was on the pavement thinking about the government.

  • Dani California & Wikipedia brought me here.

  • 0:08 looks exactly like Ted Bundy

  • Love it love Tom petty
