Andrew Garfield had a great box office debut this weekend with his movie, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” bringing in $92 million, but it’s the 30-year-old star’s other debut that’s creating a lot of buzz. A 22-second teaser for a new music video by Arcade Fire emerged on the internet this weekend, showing Andrew Garfield wearing a blond wig, striking makeup, and a white dress.

The teaser is for Arcade Fire’s upcoming music video, “We Exist” off of their 2013 album Reflektor. The song is about a gay kid coming out to his father, and includes lyrics such as, “Daddy, it's true, I'm different from you/ But tell me why they treat me like this?" In the teaser, we see Garfield walking through a crowd of festival-goers at the recent Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

Win Butler, lead singer for the band, supports equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. Before performing “We Exist” at the festival, he shouted out to the crowd, “The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue!” Also, during a Halloween concert last year, Butler said, “let’s make gay marriage be super f—ing normal,” just before playing “Normal Person,” another song from their Reflektor album.

Andrew Garfield also believes in marriage equality. "Of course I'm in favor of marriage equality," he said in an interview with The Times of London last year. "Same-sex couples should have the same rights as anybody else. There is no argument against equality. How can anyone argue against compassion and understanding?"

You can catch Andrew Garfield in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” in theaters now. Arcade Fire is currently on tour in Europe. Their US tour begins on July 30th in Mountain View, CA.
