If you were wondering why Andrew Garfield appeared in drag with Arcade Fire at Coachella (other than some easy blog bait - hey guys), here we have it: the new video for "We Exist." Arcade Fire have a history of big "event" videos (their "Afterlife" video netted Emily Kai Bock a well-deserved Prism Prize), and this is no different: the celeb-centric clip is a sometimes-melancholy/sometimes inspiring/sometimes Flashdance-in-a-country-bar-evoking story, according to the press release, about "a gay kid talking to his dad." This is who I am, dad, an Arcade Fire fan.
