Well, duh! If he's the most famous, why is the singer asking if we remember him, especially if it's obvious from the lyrics that we have no difficulty remembering other less-famous reindeer? If the listeners can recall Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen; then surely they can recall the one whose fame exceeds all the ones mentioned.

This song makes no sense.
You expected sense in a song about a fat guy who flies through the air on a sleigh pulled by a team of reindeer and that will be grounded by fog unless he finds a reindeer with a glowing nose?
