McDonald's customers create fake poster to hang in restaurant promoting racial diversity

Two college students in Texas pulled off an epic prank when they hung a professional-looking poster of themselves in their local McDonald's in the name of lighthearted fun and cultural representation. The best way to do this, they figured, was for Maravilla to disguise himself as a McDonald's employee.

Maravilla and his friend Christian Toledo cooked up a plan.

With the help of a couple of friends, the mission was complete and now nearly two months later, the poster is STILL UP. It was unclear whether McDonald's knew the poster's origins or if the eatery would allow it to remain.

Brynn Shuller of Burbank, Calif., tweeted that she and her friends slipped photos of themselves into picture frames for sale at a Walmart.

Vettel says he's still in it after Monza setback
We know we have a very strong auto , which was clearly demonstrated by the fact we monopolised the front row of the grid. The win meant Hamilton extended his lead over Vettel in the driver standings to 30 points with seven races remaining.

They lay in wait for over an hour until the coast was clear. But when the moment came, they were ready and the poster went up without a hitch. Then we took a pic with our pic in the frame and put that in another frame!

While acknowledging it was a lot of fun, Jevh makes clear that there is a serious point to be made about the representation of Asian people in American society - whether that is representation in fast food marketing or in Hollywood movies. Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition.

After the incident McDonald's applauded the duo for their creativity.

They found a "natural environment" that looked similar to the locations used for the existing photos, and took a picture similar to the ones they had seen inside the restaurant.

"I really hope they'll never take it down", Maravilla says at the end of the video. The BBC has approached the company for comment.
