Help with challenge

Challenge task 1 of 1

Set the 'greeting' variable, on line 29, by using the 'genericGreet' function in the context of 'andrew' with the array of arguments, 'args1'.

The following is my response.

      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.genericGreet.apply(Andrew, args1);

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

You don't need the second line there, it can all be one. Nt sure if that will pass the challenge. But it works.

You're pretty close. when you passed andrew you broke case sensitivity. so its looking for Andrew rather than andrew.

greeting.genericGreet.apply(andrew, args1);

Thanks J,

changing the case from "Andrew" to "andrew" didn't pass the challenge.
