What did I do wrong here?

The error message says "Don't forget to instantiate the dictionary" but I did.

import UIKit

// Add your code below
class ViewController: UIViewController {
  override func viewDidLoad() {
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

    if let plistPath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("CrazyInformation", ofType: "plist"),
    let crazyInformationDictionary = NSDictionary(contentsOfFile: plistPath),
    let currentCrazyInformationDictionary = crazyInformationDictionary["currently"] as? [String: AnyObject] {
      let crazyInformation = CrazyInformation(crazyInformationDictionary: currentCrazyInformationDictionary)

  override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated
