"au jus"

Arby's has been advertising for years the serving of "au jus" that
comes with its roast beef sandwiches.

The TV commercials used to say "oh zhoo."

In the latest version, however, the announcer clearly says "ah zhoo."  In
fact, the first two or three times I heard it, I though he was trying
to say "Anjou," which made even less sense.
