Remember that the html tag to add Javascript files needs a closing tag, for example <script src = "whatever.js"></script>

First, you don't add HTML to the javascript file. Only javascript goes inside javascript files.

Second, you need to add <script> tags to point the html in the direction of the javascript. Watch this video again. Around the 2:25 mark, it'll give you a pretty good idea of how to solve this challenge.
