Dennis joins Dee and Charlie in their quest to craft the perfect viral video, and Dee interviews Dennis, who takes himself way too seriously. Luckily, Charlie comes along and kicks him right in the groin—viral gold.

The scene was filmed across the street from Independence Hall, which is the main attraction of Independence National Historical Park. It's one of the most important places in American history, as our founding fathers chopped it up in the space, and later adopted the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution here. From 1775 to 1783, it was the primary meeting place for the Second Continental Congress, and the Constitutional Convention was held here during the summer of 1787. It was the original home of the Liberty Bell, which now resides across the street on Independence Mall and can be glimpsed in the background. Independence Hall can be seen on the back of a U.S. $100, on the back of the bicentennial Kennedy half dollar, and the stamp the US Post Office created in its honor in 1956. Because of its importance, several buildings have been erected in its image and honor, including the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI, and Howard University's Founders Library. Both are National Historic Landmarks; Independence Hall became a World Heritage Site in 1979.
