The music video is themed around Alice in Wonderland and was directed by Jeff Stein. Stewart appears as the caterpillar at the beginning, sitting on a mushroom with a hookah water pipe while playing a sitar. Petty appears in the video dressed as The Mad Hatter, and actress Wish Foley played Alice. At the end of the video, Alice, who has been turned into a cake, is eaten by Petty and even friends of her own, and then a final shot of her being swallowed whole by Petty, after which he gives a small burp and pats his mouth dry.
