Smokey Robinson has never heard of Chanukah

The legendary singer struggled to pronounce the name of the Jewish holiday

Smokey Robinson has the internet laughing at this one... the singer was asked to record a "Cameo" video for a fan and to wish her a happy Chanukah since it's the holiday season... but apparently Smokey was unfamiliar with the spelling of the holiday and pronounced it as "Cha-nook-ah"!

Hey, it happens! Who hasn't wildly mispronounced something and then felt silly afterwards.
