Looks like Smokey Robinson might need to brush up on his pronunciations of holidays.

Jeff Jacobson gifted his mother a cameo from legendary singer Smokey Robinson for Hanukkah. A cameo is a video you can purchase from a celebrity with a personalized message for a fee. Smokey Robinson’s fee is $399.

Jacobson didn’t quite get what he paid for. Especially since Smokey Robinson totally butchered the traditional pronunciation for Hanukkah, “Chanukah” phonetically as Cha-Noo-Kah. Now this video is going viral.

Don’t worry. Jacobson and his mother got a laugh too.
