JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Objects Call and Apply

Code not working. Have been stuck for a while now.

I'm trying to follow the video Call and Apply to answer this code challenge and I'm still unable to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated!

    <title> JavaScript Foundations: Objects</title>
      html {
        background: #FAFAFA;
        font-family: sans-serif;
    <h1>JavaScript Foundations</h1>
    <h2>Objects: Call and Apply</h2>
      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)

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

hope this help

It might just be that you're missing the semicolon at the end of greeting.apply(andrew, args1).

Actually your code is correct. Maybe little inefficient, but still should work. You can check it, by simply pasting it into browser console. The issue must be in challenge checking sctipt. If you want to see that your answer is correct, use code from first answer.

ok phew thanks! Its good to hear that I did learn something... haha!

Thanks all
