Remember when Lance Armstrong was all like, “I have never taken performance-enhancing drugs,” but then everyone realized it was all a big fat lie? Not only did he use steroids, he also ruined the careers of people close to him because they knew the truth.

But years before his transgressions were regarded as fact, the seven-time Tour de France winner scored some major bucks by lying when he filmed an anti-doping Nike commercial in 2001.

In it, the cyclist says “Everybody wants to know what I’m on. What am I on? I’m on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. Plus, a healthy cocktail of steroids. What are you on?”

Armstong admitted to Oprah Winfrey that he did use performance-enhancing drugs in an interview that will air Friday, to which everyone will reply, “No shit.”
