The tweet also caught the eye of Ellen Degenres, who invited them onto her show to discuss the process of actually pulling off the prank.
Amazingly, it involved buying a McDonald's uniform from their local charity stop to wear when installing the poster and even creating a fake job title for their employee badges: Regional Interior Coordinator. McDonald's was so impressed by their efforts that it actually granted their wishes and made them poster boys, awarding them both with $25,000 (around £19,000) as a fee.
Explaining their reasons for creating the poster, Maravilla cited a need for increased diverse representation in advertising:
We looked around and we saw that there were all these other posters on there of people with different ethnicities, and we saw all these people having fun.
So we decided to represent ourselves, as Asians, to be up there as well.
Both men have since taken to social media to express their gratitude, and McDonald's has followed up by congratulating the men for their efforts.
