What do you do when there’s a big, blank wall inside your local McDonald’s? Just ask Jevh Maravilla…
That’s right, without telling the manager or the employees, Maravilla hung a fake poster of himself and a friend. And while it is funny, the two friends also did it for a very specific reason. Maravilla said, “If you haven’t noticed, there isn’t a lot of Asians represented in media. And hopefully one day I could see someone like me on the big screen. So one day, my bud Christian and I were eating at McDonald’s, munching on some snack wraps. I look up and I see a blank wall and I tell Christian, ‘Hey, what if we put a picture of us on there? Look around, there are literally no Asians in any of these walls. Maybe we can change that.'”
Hopefully, the poster will remain up for quite a while. Maravilla added, “Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition. And I guess I did my part.” Yes, you did. Nice work.
