Mistake on video at 1:06?

Is Andrew assigning a new variable "isHungry" to true at 1:06? Because as you can see at 1:12 the variable is "isHungy" and not "isHungry"

Good catch! And yes, you are absolutely correct that he is accidentally creating a new variable called "isHungry" in the browser console since he had a typo "isHungy" in his JavaScript file. I'm sure if he was actually using those variables elsewhere in his code, he would have caught it, but those kind of mistakes can sometimes cause big headaches.
