I am working on the calling methods practice. I think I am missing something.

I have tried several iterations with no success. Am I close:

  var genericGreet = function(name, mood) {
    name = name || "you";
    mood = mood || "good";
    return "Hello " + name + ", my name is " + this.name +
      " and I am in a " + mood + " mood!";
  }
  ;
  var andrew = {
    name: "Andrew",
    greet: genericGreet()
  };

  var args1 = ["Michael", "awesome", ":)"];

  var greeting = andrew.greet.apply(args1);

I remember this code challenge really confusing me as well.

 var genericGreet = function(name, mood) {
        name = name || "you";
        mood = mood || "good";
        return "Hello " + name + ", my name is " + this.name +
          " and I am in a " + mood + " mood!";
      }

      var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew"
      }

      var args1 = ["Michael", "awesome", ":)"];

      var greeting = genericGreet.apply(andrew,args1);
