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

Part of Maravilla and Toledo's scheme involved tracking down a McDonald's uniform shirt at Goodwill which Maravilla wore to play the part of a'Regional Interior Coordinator

The pair took photos of themselves walking and holding McDonald's food - for Toledo, a burger; and Maravilla, an order of fries - in a location similar to the backdrops of the posters already hanging in the restaurant.

In an interview with Click2Houston website, Maravilla said he and his friends were inspired by "Crazy Rich Asians". Jevh, who has Filipino heritage, decided it was time to fix this and enlisted his friend Christian Toledo to help.

"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.

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

From the video, it didn't look like they even noticed.

"If you haven't noticed there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media and hopefully, some day, I can see someone like me on the big screen".

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

Maravilla then managed to track down a McDonald's uniform shirt at Goodwill - a steal at less than $7 - and doctored up a fake ID badge that made it appear to anyone asking questions that he was Jeff Bergara, a McDonald's Regional Interior Coordinator.

"It fit me perfectly", he said.

Jevh also shared how the prank unfolded in a YouTube video posted on Sunday.

They took the poster to the McDonald's late one night where they met up with a group of friends. He told USA Today: "Like, for Asian men".

They edited the poster to have the same dotted circle design as the other ones in the restaurant.

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".
