HuffPost Exclusive: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Don't Pull Me Over" Music Video

Posted: 12/15/10 10:53 AM ET

I made this clip in my studio in Venice, CA with some pals one fine day a few months ago.

For me it was a cool opportunity to collaborate with one of my favorite visual artists, the LA-based Patrick Roberts, who created all of the collage and set elements.

It was also an opportunity to support my dad's consistent output of really great music.

Thirty some odd years into living in a family that makes music I still feel so lucky and excited to be one of the first to hear a new record.

This song "Don't Pull Me Over" is a special one on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' latest blues album, Mojo.

On first listen it is sort of the "weird track" similar to the anomalies "Don't Come Around Here No More" or "You Don't Know How It Feels". It doesn't fit on the record but in a way it is the stand out moment on the record. It is the comic relief. And the first time you hear the entire record it makes a big impression.

In his reclusive way my pop did not want to do any traditional promotion for Mojo. But with some nepotism and coaxing I was allowed to produce this strange and humble offering.

So trip out and have a giggle and dig that guitar solo. I really hope you enjoy this music video for "Don't Pull Me Over".
