Student poster prank in Texas McDonald's goes unnoticed for nearly two months

One day, this guy named Jeff was eating a wrap at a McDonald's with his friend, and they noticed there were all these advertising posters hanging up on the walls of people enjoying McDonald's food, but none of these smiling, happy people were Asian.

The first step was making the poster. Maravilla was wearing his McDonald's shirt to blend in.

Brynn Shuller of Burbank, Calif., tweeted that she and her friends slipped photos of themselves into picture frames for sale at a Walmart. "I look up, and I see a blank wall and, and I tell Christian 'hey, what if we put a picture of us on there?' Look around, there's literally no Asians in any of these walls".

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.

From there, they headed to the store and when no staff were around, they hung up their own poster. "I was very, very nervous", Jevh said.

So Maravilla and Toledo came up with a plan.

They pulled off the prank on 13 July and the poster has been up ever since.

'Coyote Ugly' Actress Among Those Arrested at Kavanaugh Hearing
As a young lawyer, Kavanaugh worked for Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he would replace on the high court. He was again sitting in the hearing room for the afternoon session.

"We put adhesive on the back so it could be taken down".

"If you haven't noticed, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media", he says in the clip.

Mcdonald's was actually thrilled by the men's creativity.

Jevh says he was anxious his parents would be cross but they were so amused they visited the restaurant and posed for photos with it.

'I kind of hope they will ask us to be representative models for them, ' Maravilla told KHOU.

But getting the poster into the McDonald's and on the wall took some planning and chicanery, which began with a trip to a local thrift store. The BBC has approached the company for comment.
