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

"I noticed there was a blank wall at McDonald's so I decided to make this fake poster of me and my friend", wrote Maravilla. The best way to do this, they figured, was for Maravilla to disguise himself as a McDonald's employee.

On July 13, Maravilla, Toledo and friends snuck the over-sized poster into the Pearland McDonald's and proceeded to hang it on the wall without being detected. The group brought the poster into the restaurant and leaned it against a wall - backwards, so as not to attract attention.

Jevh and Christian made a decision to be themselves - as students - for the picture. "What motivated me was 'Crazy Rich Asians, ' the movie that came out, that boosted my confidence into thinking maybe one day I could be just like that, and if I take a step and do something small like this, it could make a difference".

They lay in wait for over an hour until the coast was clear.

To be fair, they really have done an excellent job with that poster.

"I wanted people to think it was impressive that it's been there for so long", Jevh told Inc.

President Uhuru Kenyatta left the country on Friday evening for Beijing to attend the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation. Speaking earlier at a business forum, Xi said China had to be careful about where money was spent.

Maravilla believes there are not a lot of Asians represented in the media and thought of the ideal opportunity to make that happen. Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition.

Mcdonald's was actually thrilled by the men's creativity. So, they hung up a photo of themselves in a Texas restaurant.

The tweet promoting their no-takedown streak has garnered more than 950,000 likes and 240,000 retweets as of posting. People have been leaving comments endorsing his message on representation.

Jevh Maravilla detailed the unusual caper in a YouTube video entitled "We Became McDonald's Poster Models", which explained how he and friend Christian Toledo were able to pull it off.

But getting the poster into the McDonald's and on the wall took some planning and chicanery, which began with a trip to a local thrift store.
