TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS: “Don’t Come Around Here No More” — Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers meet Alice in Wonderland. This clip is packed with oversized everything, from coffee cups to donuts to lumps of sugar. Ouch! It’s a cute idea. Too bad it doesn’t work.
Watching Petty play the Mad Hatter just isn’t my cup of tea. And seeing him and the Heartbreakers devour a young lady, who by now is a huge cake, made me lose my appetite. The slow-moving song has its good moments, but that’s about it.
Lewis Caroll must be turning over in his grave — I simply turned the channel. (PASS)
