Watch Andrew Garfield Play the ‘Spider-Man’ Theme Song on ‘Tonight Show’
By Shannon Carlin
Andrew Garfield got our Spidey senses tingling last night on The Tonight Show when he brought out the old guitar for a heartfelt version of the Spider-Man theme.
“I’m no Adele Dazeem,” Garfield said, poking fun at John Travolta’s pronunciation flub at the Oscars as he introduced Frozen star, Idina Menzel.
It’s true, Garfield is no Menzel (or even Dazeem, but he puts his heart and soul into his acoustic take on the theme song. Closing his eyes, he did his best Bob Dylan impression as host Jimmy Fallon looked on laughing and clapping in support.
Fallon even grabbed a tambourine as The Roots played backup to help the actor perform for the first time in public.
While his version doesn’t hold a candle to The Ramones take on the classic theme, Garfield showed that he’s got a good sense of humor. And of course, that he and his girlfriend, Emma Stone, must be a lot of fun at parties.
Watch him perform the “Spider-Man Theme” below, and see Garfield in Spider-Man 2, which hits theaters today (May 2).
