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

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

If you haven't noticed, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media. "I kind of hope they will ask us to be representative models for them, like for Asian men".

"It was pretty simple", Maravilla said, laughing. The student posted a photo to Twitter showing the poster still hanging inside the store 51 days after the prank began.

"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.

Maravilla told KHOU that one day in June, while he and his friend, Christian Toledo, 25 - both Filipino-American - were eating at their frequently visited Pearland McDonald's, they looked around and realized that none of the posters had any Asians in them.

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

What they did not expect is how viral their prank would get in social media, as his post has now garnered nearly 230,400 retweets and 927,910 likes, as of this writing.

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. The best way to do this, they figured, was for Maravilla to disguise himself as a McDonald's employee.

"McDonald's is a worldwide corporation so we wanted to make the biggest impact if possible", said Maravilla.

The pranksters made a decision to post their adventure to Maravilla's YouTube page, where a vlog of their shenanigans has been viewed more than 500,000 times. "That's the main goal".

'We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants, ' the company said. "We applaud these students' creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon".
