Two Pearland friends going viral after pranking McDonald’s with diversity poster

Students’ Fake McDonald’s Poster Goes Unnoticed for 51 Days

At a friend's suggestion, Maravilla checked the local Goodwill for old McDonald's uniforms and walked away with a $7 shirt to pose as an employee while they pulled off the stunt.

Maravilla and Toledo made their OWN poster, Photoshopping it to look like the other McDonald's ads on the walls, and had it printed. "What motivated me was 'Crazy Rich Asians, ' the movie that came out, that boosted my confidence into thinking maybe one day I could be just like that, and if I take a step and do something small like this, it could make a difference".

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

Maravilla's shenanigans, which have since gone viral, were the result of a realization that there were zero images of Asians on the walls at the particular McDonald's restaurant that they frequent.

The restaurant owner is now one of the pranksters biggest fans and openly applauded them for their creativity.

"And I really hope they'll never take it down", Maravilla says in the video. "I was very, very nervous", Jevh said.

Jevh also shared how the prank unfolded in a YouTube video posted on Sunday.

Asked how he would respond if the umpire in the next match did the same thing as Lahyani, Federer said: "That won't happen". The faintest of whispers to a players box - if noticed by the umpire - will earn a warning and in all likeliness, a fine.

Jehv Maravilla and Christian Toledo spent a lot of time in McDonald's.

"It is still up", Maravilla proudly told InsideEdition.com Tuesday.

'They had other races, but no Asians so we felt like it was our duty to put ourselves up there, ' Maravilla said.

"We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

McDonald's, however, did not indicate whether it meant to remove Maravilla and Toledo's photo.

A media production major, Maravilla said he hoped this would add to the conversation of Asian representation in the media and said he'd love it if the restaurant left the poster up.
