Watch: Andrew Garfield in drag for new Arcade Fire video

Remember that teaser from the other week? The full video is out, and it's brilliant...


The other week Arcade Fire teased us with a trailer for their new video for We Exist – the latest single to be taken from their chart-topping masterpiece Reflektor.

It had lots of gratuitous shirtless Andrew Garfield scenes, with the Amazing Spider-Man actor dressing in drag and walking through a festival crowd at Coachella.

Now the full video is here and, well, it's bloody brilliant. A heart-wrenching short-film about the journey towards acceptance, identity and finding a purpose, while battling prejudice. Oh, and with a cheeky nod to Footloose slipped in, too. Have a watch below – this is going to win awards, undoubtedly.



Oh, and today Arcade Fire also announced a massive outdoor show in London's Hyde Park on 3 July, following their sold out shows at Earl's Court and headline set at Glastonbury. Tickets are priced £59.50 and will be available on Friday 23 May, from 9am, at bst-hydepark.com.
