Joshua‘s famous scene in the 2001 movie features him playing the song “Never Forget Where I’m From” on the ukulele while Jack Black‘s character walks by. Director Peter Farrelly discovered him playing outside of a public library while on vacation in Hawaii. You can watch a clip from the scene below.
