Pianist and experimental musician Marco Benevento accidentally appears in the latest Pixies’ music video, Jambands.com reported Tuesday.

The video for “Andro Queen” includes footage of Benevento from a recent show in Oregon. Benevento apparently did not know he was being filmed, nor that he’d be featured in a band’s video, the website reported.

“Andro Queen” is the first single from the Pixies’ first album since 1991.
