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

In a You Tube video revealing the prank Maravilla showed off a fake ID badge he made

Maravilla and his friend Christian Toledo cooked up a plan. They saw a blank wall in June and decided it was the flawless place to put a picture of themselves. Maybe we can change that'.

Jev and his friend, Chris, took a picture in front of their neighborhood event center, edited the photo to match the graphics in the McDonald's posters, and received a print of their picture a week later.

A group of friends from Texas were so frustrated by what they call the lack of "equal racial representation" in billboards inside McDonald's stores that they made a decision to take matters into their own hands, shooting their own campaign and covertly hanging it up in the store.

"Call me Jeff Bergara: the Regional Interior Coordinator", Maravilla says in the video.

They pulled off the prank on 13 July and the poster has been up ever since. His post showed photos of him and his friend, posing next to the poster featuring their faces.

A few weeks later, it was still there. Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition. "I guess I did my part".

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

After the incident McDonald's applauded the duo for their creativity.

A McDonald's franchisee released a statement on the prank Tuesday, saying, "We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

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. Whether Jev's poster will remain in the restaurant is still to be seen, but his point was made loud and clear.
