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

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.

"Look around. There are literally no Asians on these walls", he says as he points to other pictures on the walls.

"All the other posters were in natural environments, like a city or at the beach, so we went to our local event center", he explained. So, they hung up a photo of themselves in a Texas restaurant.

The poster was delivered a week later, and Maravilla and Toledo set their sights on figuring out how to get it onto a wall at McDonald's without being noticed.

"The fries [container] was advertising the FIFA World Cup at the time, so we wanted to take that out, and we added to the actual [number of] fries, because, well, we ate some of them", he said.

They then ordered a giant poster to their home and planned their prank.

Russian Federation says Syrian regime preparing to 'solve' Idlib problem
But Turkey, whose army has a string of observation posts around the edge of the rebel area, has warned against such an offensive. That would bring Assad close to reclaiming the major strategic prize in the region, two arterial highways running to Aleppo.

Maravilla found a McDonald's uniform shirt at a thrift store for $7, drove to the restaurant, and, with the help of two friends, he managed to put it up.

"It's now been 51 days since i hung it up", he said on Twitter on Monday, Sept. 3.

Jevh also shared how the prank unfolded in a YouTube video posted on Sunday. He told USA Today: "Like, for Asian men".

Maravilla is hopeful about the fast food corporation's response.

In a statement obtained by DailyMail.com, Pearland McDonald's franchisee Mariselle Quijano said, "We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

The pranksters chose to post their adventure to Maravilla's YouTube page, where a vlog of their shenanigans has been viewed more than 500,000 times. "We applaud these students" creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon'.
