Why is this not letting me set the default argument for 'name' to 'Treehouse'

I looked back into the video, and it says to set the default name, I need to put the argument inside the def hello, but that is not working.

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

def hello(name="Treehouse"):
     return 'Hello {}'.format(name)
