Two friends pull off epic prank at a Texas McDonald's

University of Houston student and YouTuber Jevh Maravilla recently revealed via Twitter that he and his friend Christian created an alarmingly professional McDonald's poster featuring themselves and then managed to hang it in their local restaurant.

Amazingly, they arrived in the restaurant, put the poster up and left without any real McDonald's staff member coming to question them.

So when they saw a bare wall, they had an idea that the two of them, both Filipino-American, were the people to fill it... with a giant picture of themselves.

Maravilla further explained his motive for the prank in his vlog posted on YouTube last August 2: "If you notice, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in the media". And hopefully one day I could see someone like me on the big screen.

In June, Maravilla and Toledo went to work on their poster.

On July 13, with the help of some other friends, the duo snuck the poster into the restaurant and tacked it up when no one was looking.

The actor worked at the supermarket chain for 15 months before quitting in light of the recent publicity surrounding his day job. Owens did not respond to requests for comment, but he thanked supporters on Instagram, posting, "There's no shame in hard work".

To prevent suspicion, Jevh purchased a McDonald's shirt at a thrift store for $6.48 and dressed up as "Jeff Bergara". His post showed photos of him and his friend, posing next to the poster featuring their faces.

McDonald's did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment as to whether or not the poster will be kept up.

"We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

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

'Asian representation in media is not as prevalent as it should be, ' Maravilla said. "It would be, like, a dream come true", Maravilla told KHOU 11.
