Student's fake poster hangs at McDonald's for months

Something tells me that this is SO good, we'll see this poster in McDonald's stores nationwide.

They had spotted a blank wall flawless for their poster, but the hard bit was going to be getting it up there undetected.

'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 pulled off the prank on 13 July and the poster has been up ever since.

'I kind of hope they will ask us to be representative models for them, ' Maravilla told KHOU.

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

With the help of some friends, they put the poster up on a wall at the restaurant without anyone noticing.

Jevh says he was anxious his parents would be cross but they were so amused they visited the restaurant and posed for photos with it.

"It fit me perfectly", he said.

Jev and his friend, Chris, took a picture in front of their neighborhood event center, edited the photo to match the graphics in the McDonald's posters, and received a print of their picture a week later.

On a YouTube video Maravilla posted in August after he first carried out the prank, he explained a little more about the motivation behind it.

In a statement obtained by DailyMail.com, Pearland McDonald's franchisee Mariselle Quijano said, "We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

McDonald's, however, did not indicate whether it meant to remove Maravilla and Toledo's photo.

Amazingly, they arrived in the restaurant, put the poster up and left without any real McDonald's staff member coming to question them. "We applaud these students" creativity and hope to see them in our restaurants again soon'.
