one day and we looked around and saw there were posters around that didn't have any Asians", explained Jevh Maravilla, a University of Texas student. Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition.
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.
Maravilla then managed to track down a McDonald's uniform shirt at Goodwill - a steal at less than $7 - and doctored up a fake ID badge that made it appear to anyone asking questions that he was Jeff Bergara, a McDonald's Regional Interior Coordinator.
"Sounds legit", he said in the video.
If you didn't know better you'd think the two smiling guys in the poster on the wall with the other posters of people enjoying McDonald's at the McDonald's in Pearland south of Houston was part of the restaurant's marketing and promotion campaign.
On July 13, with the help of some other friends, the duo snuck the poster into the restaurant and tacked it up when staff wasn't looking.
"Left, left, left, left, left, left left", he said. "Cassandra, up. There. Perfect".
In the video, the friends showed how they pulled off the stunt. More surprising to Maravilla was that more than seven weeks later, the picture remained in place.
"The fries [container] was advertising the FIFA World Cup at the time, so we wanted to take that out, and we added to the actual [number of] fries, because, well, we ate some of them", he said.
"We put adhesive on the back so it could be taken down". They were there for a good 3 or 4 months until they got a new batch of frames in.
