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.
