Adding the second parameter is required in order to create a 'new' angular app, as indicated in the challenge. Leaving that second parameter out will just re-use an existing angular app. The teacher mentions this around the 1:18 mark of the previous video, but it is an easy thing to miss. It's one of those tiny and easy to miss details that can cause a lot of headaches!

So, in your first line, make sure to add an empty array as the second param:

angular.module('foobar', [])

I understand it by myself, it's all ok now, Thanks Jeff.
