While Kelly Clarkson recently noted that “one of the best parts of the holidays is getting to watch holiday movies,” it appears that the three-time Grammy Award winner hasn’t seen a popular seasonal flick.

The 41-year-old singer and television show host tested her Christmas movie knowledge with a quiz, which was shared to The Kelly Clarkson Show’s official Instagram account on Dec. 23.

While she completed a famous line from Will Ferrell’s 2003 comedy, Elf, with ease, she was stumped by the second question: “In what movie is Turbo Man the hot Christmas toy of the season?”

Clarkson asked her producer for a hint, but then admitted that she has never seen the movie in question: the 1996 comedy Jingle All the Way

“Oh my god, I know you’re being Arnold Schwarzenegger,” she stated of the film’s main star, whom her producer imitated off camera. “... Except I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie that you’re referring to, but I know what you’re talking about. I need to watch Jingle All the Way this year, guys.”

Plenty of fans chimed in to the comments section to suggest additional films for Clarkson to watch this holiday season.

Elf is such a good classic Christmas movie 👍,” one person noted.

Jingle All the Way is a must watch! What a great cast,” someone else added.

Home Alone & Grinch with Jim Carrey (I remember going to a midnight premiere showing of that with friends when it came out when we were little),” another fan noted of their personal faves.
