Troubles when using Javascript within Velocity?

I've been trying to implement Sanford Whiteman's post "Use Javascript within Velocity" from late 2017 to utilize Javascript in an Email Script Token, and when following the example verbatim, instead of outputting the Lead's firstname

Kenneth

playfully as

K e N n E t H

, the actual Velocity code is output in the email:

$JSEngine.put("lead", $lead) $JSEngine.get("spacedOutInJS")

Attached are screenshots showing:

  • the token script - named "ai_trk_test" (20190808_104120_msedge_CompassionateTuraco_938x794.png),
  • the email draft with {{my.ai_trk_test}} included (20190808_104357_msedge_SnowBuzzard_815x516.png), and
  • previewing the email as a Person with Kenneth as first name 20190808_104600_msedge_ImmenseBluet_1052x680.png)

 

Am I missing something here?
