"I noticed there was a blank wall at McDonald's so I decided to make this fake poster of me and my friend".

"We were eating McDonald's one day and we looked around and saw there were posters around that didn't have any Asians", explained Jevh Maravilla. "They had other races but no Asians so we felt like it was our duty to put ourselves up there".

Jehv Maravilla, 21, and his friend Christian Toledo 25, noticed a lack of representation in the marketing materials at a McDonalds in Pearland, near Houston.

They then edited the image and ordered it in large print via Office Depot. Noticing that none of the photos on the other walls had any Asians portrayed in them, they joked that they should take a photo of themselves and put it up in the blank spot.

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

After the finished product arrived, they created a cover in order to hang it on the wall.

"We went thrift shopping and found a McDonald's shirt for $7", Maravilla says in the video.

Roxanne replied: "Watching it feels like a completely different scenario to what it felt at the time". I am crippled with emotion and shame, that I would have put someone in that position.

In the video, Maravilla takes off his jacket to impersonate an interior coordinator and then supervises as his friends hang the poster on the wall.

They took the poster to the McDonald's late one night where they met up with a group of friends.

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

Maravilla told Inc. that the phony advertising image has been on the McDonald's wall for the past 53 days and that he waited so long to reveal the prank via Twitter because he 'wanted people to think it was impressive that it's been there for so long'. So, they hung up a photo of themselves in a Texas restaurant.

"I kind of hope they will ask us to be representative models for them, like for Asian men".
