check your MainActivity java file and make sure it extends the "Activity" class and not the "ActionBarActivity". Make sure you use "import android.app.Activity". Then you should be able to go along with the video and change the theme to anything like 'android:Theme.Holo.Light.NoActionBar'

I went to styles.xml and changed

to

parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar"

and that removed it from all my activities.
