The problem is not references, its where he calls add_action.

The problem is that $this is a special variable reserved for being
called inside the class. You cannot use $this at all outside of the
context of a class, and doing so will cause errors.

The key to fixing this, is to move the add_action call to the
constrictor of the class.
