"Amazing Spider-Man" star Andrew Garfield dresses in drag and showcases quite the amazing -- and triumphant -- transformation in the new "Arcade Fire" music video, "We Exist."

In the clip, which was released on Friday, May 16, the 30-year-old British actor, who stars in the recently-released sequel film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," shaves his head and puts on a bra, makeup and a wig made of blonde, tousled hair (Watch the video here: warning - contains an expletive).

Wearing cut-off denim shorts, he then tries on two button-down shirts, tied at the waist, before choosing the second. He ends up in a bar and hesitantly dances with a male patron before three others grope and attack him. The character is then seen dancing barefoot by himself in an empty room.

His heeled shoes resurface and four, scruffy men resembling his aggressors and dressed in outfits that match his begin dancing in unison. Garfield is then seen wearing a lace white dress and a pink, superhero-like eye shadow mas and stepping out onto the mosh pit of a stage where Arcade Fire is performing. This footage was taken at the group's show at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April (Watch the video here: warning - contains an expletive). Garfield then gets onstage and dances near the band members, whose lead singer, Win Butler, sports similar makeup.

"We Exist" tells the story of a young man coming out to his father, according to Billboard.

"The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue," the music outlet quoted Butler as telling the Coachella crowd before performing the song, which is featured on Arcade Fire's 2013 album "Reflektor."
