Hi there! The great news is that your JavaScript is just fine. However, something happened to your html file. At some point, a "t" was deleted from the closing </script> tag there, so now, it can't even load the JavaScript file.

Your HTML says:

<script src="app.js"></scrip>

But it should have:

<script src="app.js"></script>

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
