Cannot pass code challenge for "JS Foundations", var greeting will not pass correctly when apply method is used

Output should be : "Hello Michael, my name is Andrew and I am in a awesome mood!" <br> my code:

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;

      greeting.apply (andrew, args1);
