But this was one instance when a amusing flight of fancy became reality (after a little hard work and a $7 McDonald's shirt was obtained). Look around. There are literally no Asians on any of these walls. "We applaud these students' creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon", said Mariselle Quijano, who owns that particular McDonald's.
Jehv Maravilla, 21, and his friend Christian Toledo 25, noticed a lack of representation in the marketing materials at a McDonalds in Pearland, near Houston.
"We all deserve equality and all races deserve recognition".
Jevh says he was anxious his parents would be cross but they were so amused they visited the restaurant and posed for photos with it.
Maravilla found an old McDonald's shirt at Goodwill for $7 and dressed up as an employee.
"Call me Jeff Bergara: the Regional Interior Coordinator", Maravilla says in the video.
"Sounds legit", he said in the video.
Once they were sure nobody was watching, Maravilla took off his jacket to reveal his uniform and badge, complete with a tie and walkie-talkie.
On July 13, with the help of some other friends, the duo snuck the poster into the restaurant and tacked it up when staff wasn't looking.
Watch the full breakdown of how he pulled the whole thing off below.
The friends were able to get out of the restaurant without anyone realizing what they had done.
From the video, it didn't look like they even noticed.
The prank has delighted thousands of people. Jevh decided that a photo of him and Christian posing as students would work best. The pictures were left alone for several months until the store received a new shipment of picture frames, she said.
"We put adhesive on the back so it could be taken down".
