Leave it to Jay Leno to bring up one of the more embarrassing moments in Matthew Morrison’s career.

The Glee star was on The Tonight Show on Wednesday to promote his new solo music career (and next week’s return on the hit Fox show) when things took a turn for the awkward. Jay pointed out that Matthew was once in a movie called Marci X a fairly long time ago … if you consider 2003 a long time. In the film, Morrison and a group of pink-sweatered pals were in a gay boy band called Boys R Us, and complete with a curly afro, Morrison is front-and-center belting out sugary pop tunes. Watch the video below:

Morrison, who seemed horrified by the clip, said boldly: “It was the gayest thing I’ve ever done in my life — literally.”

In his defense, it was the early 2000s when boy bands were still around and acceptable.
