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

McDonald's on Tuesday responded to a viral prank pulled off by some students in Pearland. Noticing that none of the photos on the other walls had any Asians portrayed in them, they joked that they should take a photo of themselves and put it up in the blank spot.

The two Filipino-American friends hung an advertising portrait of themselves at a fast-food joint in Houston, because they felt the posters there lacked diversity.

They even found a McDonald's shirt at a thrift store and dressed up as employees.

The two said they eat at the McDonald's at 2803 Business Center Drive often.

And judging by the response Jevh Maravilla and Christian Toledo are getting worldwide, a lot of people seem to be lovin' it.

Capuano said in his concession speech that "clearly the district wanted a lot of change". Neal, the dean of the state's House delegation, first was elected in 1989.

It's unclear at this time whether the poster will stay up in the restaurant.

"One day, my bud Christian and I were eating at McDonald's, munching on some snack wraps".

On a YouTube video Maravilla posted in August after he first carried out the prank, he explained a little more about the motivation behind it.

Through another Twitter post last September 3, Maravilla revealed that he was inspired by the blockbuster movie "Crazy Rich Asians", even tagging its stars Constance Wu and Henry Golding in his post. "Asian representation in media is not as prevalent as it should be", Maravilla told KPRC Click2Houston.

Since the poster has been up for 51 days, Maravilla said he hopes the chain would ask them to be representative models. "We applaud these students' creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon". That would be insane if they did that!
