Watch Andrew Garfield Dress in Drag for Arcade Fire’s ‘We Exist’
By Shannon Carlin
Arcade Fire’s video for their latest Reflektor single, “We Exist” is dedicated to those still looking to find their true self — even if the world doesn’t want them to. Andrew Garfield’s involved to help push along that notion — by dressing in drag.
The clip starts with a shot of Spider-Man star Garfield watching himself as he shaves his head and tries on a bra, eventually ending with him in tears.
Last month, Arcade Fire announced “We Exist” as their next single, which, according to frontman Win Butler is about “a gay kid talking to his dad” about equality. For the video, part of which was shot at Coachella, Garfield acts as this kid, who is trying to be himself in a world that won’t let him.
