"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.

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.

Two McDonald's customers in Texas pulled off a viral prank when they made a decision to turn themselves into protagonists of an ad and hang it inside the fast-food restaurant they often eat at.

So Maravilla and Toledo, both Filipino-American, made a decision to create their own ad for a blank space on the wall.

If you haven't noticed, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media.

When they went back 51 days later, the poster was still there. And hopefully one day I could see someone like me on the big screen.

The tanker was also damaged, but all its 11 crewmembers were not injured and rescued safely, according to the coast guard. A man in his 70s was killed after apparently being blown to the ground from his apartment in Osaka prefecture.

It's unclear at this time whether the poster will stay up in the restaurant. Maravilla found a McDonald's uniform at a goodwill store and created a fake badge and title of "Regional Interior Coordinator".

It shows the lengthy measures Jevh and his friend Christian took to producing the poster.

Maravilla posted a video in August explaining how him and his friend pulled off the prank and why they felt it was important.

So far, McDonald's has not responded to a request for a statement but the friends have high hopes for their response.

"To this day, I can say that the poster has been up since", concludes Maravilla, "and I really hope they never take it down".

'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'. It would be, like, a dream come true'.
