Two friends pull off epic prank at a Texas McDonald's

Two friends pull off epic prank at a Texas McDonald's

Maravilla told KHOU that one day in June, while he and his friend, Christian Toledo, 25 - both Filipino-American - were eating at their frequently visited Pearland McDonald's, they looked around and realized that none of the posters had any Asians in them.

Jevh Maravilla and his friends documented their entire plan, from setting up a photoshoot to buying official McDonald's gear, in an effort to ensure there are more images of Asians in McDonald's stores.

ITV News has contacted McDonald's for a comment but they are yet to say whether they will allow the photo to stay on the wall. Chronicled in a YouTube video, the pair put one up a poster of themselves holding a burger and fries and put it on the restaurant's wall.

If you haven't noticed, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media.

"It's now been 51 days since i hung it up", he said on Twitter on Monday, Sept. 3. So, they hung up a photo of themselves in a Texas restaurant.

A $7 McDonald's thrift shirt was purchased, a fictional McDonald's staff badge created and, after the huge parcel containing the photo arrived, they were ready to go.

Instead, the public announcement of the negative results caused the stock price to plummet by 92 percent. In the tweet , Trump described both cases as "long running, Obama era, investigations".

In the video, Maravilla takes off his jacket to impersonate an interior coordinator and then supervises as his friends hang the poster on the wall.

While there, they noticed that posters in their local restaurant contained no pictures of Asian people. "We applaud these students" creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon'.

On Sunday night, Maravilla tweeted about the prank and in 24 hours, it had gone viral with more than 100,000 retweets and 400,000 likes.

Maravilla hopes maybe he'll have a future in modeling for McDonald's campaigns.

I kind of hope they will ask us to be representative models for them.
