Kim Basinger in Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ partly creepy and partly touching video features Tom Petty as a morgue assistant who takes home a pretty female corpse for a nice dinner date. The dead woman is played by Kim Basinger, who gets all dolled up by Petty in a wedding dress and red lipstick. The date includes the two dancing in a room full of candles and later, taking a walk down to the sea where Petty releases Basinger’s body into the water. The video ends with a shot of Basinger under water as her eyes open. “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” ended up winning Best Male Video at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1994 for its unique storyline.
