Mary Jane's Last Dance features Petty as a morgue assistant who takes home the corpse of a woman (played by Kim Basinger) for a dinner date. A scene in the video featuring the corpse wearing a wedding dress in a room full of wax candles is loosely based on a passage from the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations. Later, Petty is shown carrying her to a rocky shore and gently releasing her into the sea. At the end of the video, Basinger is seen floating in the water with her eyes open. It won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video in 1994.
