Shorten was touring a school in Queanbeyan on Wednesday morning when he asked a little girl named Angelina what she had been given for Christmas.
Angelina said she was given a karaoke machine and her favourite song to sing was 'Let It Go'.
Sensing an opening the opposition leader dropped some 'Frozen' knowledge that Angelina didn't even know about.
Here's the transcript:
Bill: Do you like doing karaoke?
Bill: Are you going to see the next 'Frozen' film when it comes out?
Bill: Have you seen that little short film 'Frozen Fever' yet?
Bill: They made a little, like short sort of film. But 'Frozen' (2) comes out in the middle of this year.
Well done sir!
Shorten does have a young daughter named Clementine and while his personal approval rating is languishing, here's hoping he can let it go.
