Did McDonald’s know Lance Bass was gay?

People magazine broke the official news this week that Lance Bass is gay. But count McDonald’s among those who may have suspected as much a long time ago. Check out this 2001 commercial, dug up by BestWeekEver.tv, in which the *NSYNC boys (and a nearly unrecognizable Britney Spears) play spin the bottle. It’s Lance’s turn, and as he freshens up with some Binaca, the bottle stops, much to Lance’s presumed delight, on Justin Timberlake, who clearly is not amused. Who says McDonald’s is out of touch with reality?
