JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Strings Methods: Part 2

At 3:01, "Hello World" is just hanging out there (3rd line from bottom). What actually happens to that? Error? Ignored?

There doesn't seem to be any impact or effect whatsoever. Just wondering what actually happens to that string.

Hey Thomas Grow,

That string doesn't have any effect on the program. It's really just some loose memory in the program. It should be deleted, just to save memory where possible, but he must have just completely overlooked it haha.
