McDonald's customers create fake poster to hang in restaurant promoting racial diversity

The Asian pair noticed there wasn't a lot of diversity on the walls at the restaurant in Pearland so they made a decision to create their own poster.

"We looked around and we saw there were no Asians in the posters around McDonald's, so we chose to do it ourselves, and I guess the rest is history", said Jehv Maravilla, a 21-year-old University of Houston student.

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

Two McDonald's customers in Texas pulled off a viral prank when they made a decision to turn themselves into protagonists of an ad and hang it inside the fast-food restaurant they often eat at.

They had noticed a blank wall in the restaurant one day this summer and decided it would be cool to hang a picture there, Maravilla says in the video. "Asian representation in media is not as prevalent as it should be", Maravilla told KPRC Click2Houston.

Start the day off right with a viral prank at the expense of no one but a major American corporation.

They even found a McDonald's shirt at a thrift store and dressed up as employees. His post showed photos of him and his friend, posing next to the poster featuring their faces.

'We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants, ' the company said.

"And I really hope they'll never take it down", Maravilla says in the video.

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".

What they did not expect is how viral their prank would get in social media, as his post has now garnered nearly 230,400 retweets and 927,910 likes, as of this writing.
