"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.

Serena powers into US Open semi-finals
Sloane Stephens' run at a second straight US Open crown is over. "I think she lost also her nerves a little bit, it's normal". Open semifinals with a convincing 6-4, 6-3 victory Tuesday night over Karolina Pliskova at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

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'.
