The iconic Motown singer and frontman of the vocal group Miracles has reentered the pop culture chat, but not for a particularly talented reason. A video from Smokey Robinson's Cameo service, the platform where stars can make personalized videograms for fans, has gone viral for the star's total confusion about what 'Chanukah' is and how to pronounce it. 

"My mom grew up on the same street as Smokey Robinson in Detroit. So for Chanukah, I wanted to reunite them via @Cameo," one Twitter user wrote. "But the video takes a strange twist." Robinson says hello to the mother, then says, "They wanted me to wish you a happy Cha-noo-kah. I have no idea what Cha-noo-kah is, but happy Cha-noo-kah because they said so. Anyway, God bless you babe. And enjoy Cha-noo-kah." To be fair, Americans traditionally spell the holiday "Hanukkah," but it was endearing to see the singer try.

Robinson is certainly not alone in his now-public error, and many celebrities have their own blooper-worthy moments. Click on to see the funniest blunders from A-list celebs around the world.
