McDonald’s Surprised The Two Kids That Pranked Them With $25,000 Checks

Not too long ago, two Houston college students gained notoriety after they created a fake McDonald’s poster and hung it on the wall of a nearby location’s dining area. The kicker was that no one noticed for nearly two months.

Jevh Maravilla and Christian Toledo covertly created a McDonald’s poster, starring themselves, and secretly hung it up in the lobby of a Houston McDonald’s they frequent. The poster hung there, unnoticed, for about 51 days.

The two were recently guests on the Ellen DeGeneres Show,  and talked about what happened to them after their prank went viral. They said McDonald’s removed the photo (for renovation purposes) but planned to auction it off and give the proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House Houston charity.

Ellen then revealed that because of their pure intentions behind the poster, wanting more Asian Americans to get recognition in fast food marketing, McDonald’s will feature the two students in an upcoming campaign, complete with a $25,000 check for each of them.

You can check out exactly how it goes down in the clip here. Needless to say, the two kids who thought they would get in trouble for their stunt were genuinely stunned.

It just goes to show that if you prank McDonald’s well enough, you could get a fat check.



Pancake Celebrities

So what do Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres, Steven Colbert, and Kelly Ripa have in common? They’re pancakes. The very gifted 25-year-old Katherine Kalnes of LaGrange, IL uses nothing more than regular kitchen ingredients and Batter Blaster‘s ready-to-cook pancake spray to create these celebrity masterpieces.

This puts my Mickey Mouse pancakes I had for breakfast to complete and utter shame…oh well:
