One of the most mocked and endlessly memed parts of the movie saw evil Peter Parker dance in the doorway of a clothing store, backed by the sounds of James Brown.

This moment has become a staple of internet culture in the years since. And now, you pay homage with your Destiny 2 guardian.

As you can imagine, once the new emote was shared by Reddit user Gummo2, Destiny 2 fans couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. “I physically screamed when I saw it on sale, and instantly bought it,” said one excited fan.

Others simply took the opportunity to fire off Destiny/Spider-Man pun. “You’ll get your Bright Dust when you fix this damn door,” joked another player.

This is just a small piece of the content Bungie has released so far in their anniversary celebrations. And with The Witch Queen expansion coming soon, it’s a good time to be a Destiny 2 player.
