Spider-Man Andrew Garfield Shines In Drag In Full Arcade Fire Music Video
Spider-Man may be underperforming at the Box Office, but Andrew Garfield is certainly serving up the emotion in an incredible performance in drag in Arcade Fire's full new music video for "We Exist."
Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield plays a whole different kind of superhero in Arcade Fire's inspirational (and psychedelic) video for "We Exist." Dressing in a woman's wig and short jean shorts, Garfield's character heads down to a local bar, where he defends himself against a hoard of violent drunks – and embraces his destiny. Overall, the video's message of self-empowerment and equality is a perfect match for Win Butler's lyrics and the track's throbbing synth-rock arrangement. In a press release, Butler describes the track as "about a gay kid talking to his dad" and coming out to his straight father, and he's introduced the song onstage (including at the band's Coachella set last month, during which the video's live footage was shot) by saying, "The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue."
