Functional Kan simplicial sets are simplicial sets in which the horn-fillers required by the Kan extension condition are given explicitly by functions. We show the non-constructivity of the following basic result: if B and A are functional Kan simplicial sets, then A^B is a Kan simplicial set. This strengthens a similar result for the case of non-functional Kan simplicial sets shown by Bezem, Coquand and Parmann [TLCA 2015, v. 38 of LIPIcs]. Our

result shows that-from a constructive point of view-functional

Kan simplicial sets are, as it stands, unsatisfactory as a model of even simply typed lambda calculus. Our proof is based on a rather involved Kripke countermodel which has been encoded and verified in the Coq proof assistant.
