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

"We looked around and we saw there were no Asians in the posters around McDonald's, so we made a decision to do it ourselves, and I guess the rest is history", said Jehv Maravilla, a 21-year-old University of Houston student.

In an interview with Click2Houston website, Maravilla said he and his friends were inspired by "Crazy Rich Asians". "It was like a calling".

It shows the lengthy measures Jevh and his friend Christian took to producing the poster.

With the help of some friends, they put the poster up on a wall at the restaurant without anyone noticing.

Then they set out to flawless the photo, which needed a bit of doctoring.

"I really hope they'll never take it down".

After a quick photo shoot, and some editing, they created the ideal McDonald's poster complete with the golden arches and the signature fries.

Something tells me that this is SO good, we'll see this poster in McDonald's stores nationwide. "I was very, very nervous", Jevh said.

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.

Maravilla shared pictures of his and Toledo's handiwork on Twitter Sunday, writing, "It's now been 51 days since I hung it up".

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. He told USA Today: "Like, for Asian men".

Maravilla hopes maybe he'll have a future in modeling for McDonald's campaigns.

"We weren't trying to make a bad rap with them, we weren't trying to do any harm", Maravilla said.

Since being posted on August 2, the video had been viewed more than 314,000 times as of September 4. "We applaud these students' creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon".
