"I noticed there was a blank wall at McDonald's so I decided to make this fake poster of me and my friend". "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".
If you didn't know better you'd think the two smiling guys in the poster on the wall with the other posters of people enjoying McDonald's at the McDonald's in Pearland south of Houston was part of the restaurant's marketing and promotion campaign.
Then they ordered a 60-inch-wide, 50-inch-tall poster of the image and planned the execution of their prank.
With the help of some friends, they put the poster up on a wall at the restaurant without anyone noticing.
"I really hope they'll never take it down".
Jevh also shared how the prank unfolded in a YouTube video posted on Sunday.
The final piece to getting their poster on the wall was to actually HANG it. Maravilla would have to impersonate a McDonald's employee, of course, and just happened to find a McDonald's shirt at a local thrift store.
"It is still up", Maravilla proudly told InsideEdition.com Tuesday.
"We weren't trying to make a bad rap with them, we weren't trying to do any harm", Maravilla said.
'We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants, ' the company said. "We applaud these students' creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon", the owner said.
McDonald's, however, did not indicate whether it meant to remove Maravilla and Toledo's photo.
Since being posted on August 2, the video had been viewed more than 314,000 times as of September 4.
