McDonald’s pranksters get an invite to the Ellen show
A harmless prank on a McDonald’s in the US involving two friends who posted a blown up photo of themselves on a corner wall of a local McDonald’s branch recently caught the attention of television host Ellen DeGeneres.
The prank went viral after friends Jeb and Christian tweeted the prank they pulled on the fastfood chain. After noticing that one of the walls at McDonald’s was bare when all the others were plastered with photos of people from different ethnicities, the friends said they decided to take matters into their own hands and represented themselves as Asians.
After posting the photo, the poster stayed on the McDonald’s wall for two months before employees even noticed that it was not one of their original campaign materials.
It turns out that Jeb and Christian put a lot of effort into staging the photoshoot for their McDonald’s “ad.” And surprisingly, the duo even had their parents to act as distraction so they can put up the poster undetected.
“Congratulations,” Ellen greeted the duo when they entered her studio. “Its such an honor,” Jeb said.
What’s even more of an honor was that Ellen updated her billboard outside of the studio with one that included herself and the two self-proclaimed “Crazy Middle Class Asians.” It’s a win for creativity, all right. Watch the antics unfold below. (ANGEL ONG)
