Super-Duper!4:36 with Kenneth Love
We need a way to make use of the code that lives in our classes' superclasses. I bet there's a way to do this!
super() function lets us call a bit of code from the parent class inside our own class. This is really helpful when you need to override a method from the superclass, defining your own version, but keep the effects of the parent class's version of the code.
