A 20-second teaser for Arcade Fire's "We Exist" video reveals that the band nabbed The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield for the clip. The snippet features the actor striding through a chanting crowd while decked out in a blond wig, white dress and pink painted eye mask, intercut with scenes of Garfield shaving his head in a mirror.

As Billboard reports, the crowd scene was shot during Arcade Fire's set at the second weekend of Coachella last month. "The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue," frontman Win Butler told the crowd before the band launched into "We Exist," a song about son coming out to his father.

Arcade Fire conveniently released the clip at a high-profile moment for Garfield. His Spider-Man sequel opened on Friday, and he's set to host Saturday Night Live tonight.

The band also continued their streak of hometown musical tributes last night on their Reflektor stop in Atlanta, delivering a rendition of "Radio Free Europe" by Athens, Georgia heroes R.E.M.
