Ever dream of being in a music video? You can get pretty close to making that dream a reality with the newest Arcade Fire video for the single, "Reflektor," which was released Sept. 9.

The watcher of the video can be the reflektor by using their webcam, mouse or finger (touchscreens) to control elements of the band in the video. Check it out at justareflektor.com. Viewers can bring subjects and items into focus, blur the video, and create flash like snapshots.

Another fun fact about the band's latest single: it features vocals by none other than David Bowie. The "Ziggy Stardust" singer's people confirmed it on his Facebook page this week.

The Canadian band's fourth album is due out on Oct. 29.

Have you viewed the "Reflektor" video? What did you think of the interactive element? The song? Let us know in the comments.
