McDonalds poster prank goes viral

McDonalds poster prank goes viral”

Maravilla and his friend Christian Toledo, took a picture of themselves holding a McDonalds burger and fries, then added the logo and other features to make the it look like the others hung around a Pearland, Texas, restaurant.

"We were eating McDonald's one day and we looked around and saw there were posters around that didn't have any Asians", Maravilla told KHOU 11.

Jevh Maravilla, a Filipino-American student at the University of Houston, frequented the McDonald's branch.

The two said they eat at the McDonald's at 2803 Business Center Drive often.

So Maravilla and Toledo, both Filipino-American, chose to create their own ad for a blank space on the wall. So one day, my bud Christian and I were eating at McDonald's, munching on some snack wraps.

Since being posted on August 2, the video had been viewed more than 314,000 times as of September 4.

A $7 McDonald's thrift shirt was purchased, a fictional McDonald's staff badge created and, after the huge parcel containing the photo arrived, they were ready to go.

Jevh sought help from friends to finally hang the poster up.

On Sunday night, Maravilla tweeted about the prank and in 24-hours, it has gone viral with more than 100,000 retweets and 400,000 likes. However, the local franchisee released the following statement. "We applaud these students" creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon'.

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

Since the poster has been up for 51 days, Maravilla said he hopes the chain would ask them to be representative models. That would be insane if they did that!
