The official video for the single features Tom Petty and Mike Campbell arriving in a hovercar from the television series Logan's Run at a black tent in the desert. They find a radio/cassette player and turn it on, thus beginning the music, as the other band members, Howie Epstein, Benmont Tench, and Stan Lynch, arrive in a motorcycle and sidecar. Entering the tent, they turn on electricity for studio equipment and a bank of television sets. Mike plays a guitar solo, Howie hits a jackpot on a slot machine, and Tom overturns an Astro Invader video game before they all ride away, leaving only behind the cassette player. The look of this short film echoes the postapocalyptic film Mad Max 2, released in 1981.
