  • If you watch my show, you know that I love pranks.
  • I like scaring people, and I like making
  • celebrities wear an ear piece.
  • And I tell them to say things.
  • And they can only do whatever I tell them to do.
  • I love hiding Andy's phone and watching
  • him have a panic attack.
  • And anyway, I know a great prank when I see one.
  • And recently, I saw this tweet.
  • These two friends made a huge poster of themselves.
  • Hung it up at at a McDonald's.
  • And it stayed up there in the restaurant for two months.
  • McDonald's had no idea until their tweet went viral.
  • And I saw that.
  • And I was like, that's a good prank.
  • Bring them to me.
  • So please welcome Jevh and Christian.
  • First of all, congratulations.
  • Thank you.
  • It's such an honor.
  • That you got away with this.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • It's crazy, trying to say.
  • It is crazy.
  • So how did you come up with this idea?
  • Oh well, Christian and I we actually go to that McDonald's
  • pretty often.
  • And we sit in front of the wall where the picture's at.
  • And we sit there pretty often.
  • And we look up, and it's this blank wall.
  • Yeah.
  • So it's kind of like inviting us to put something on it.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • We looked around.
  • And we saw these other posters on there.
  • And we saw that there's different ethnicities.
  • And we saw that they're all these people having fun.
  • So we decide to represent ourselves as Asians
  • to be up there as well.
  • So we decided to put it ourselves.
  • And he always basically--
  • I play tricks with my friends a lot, so this is crazy.
  • Yeah.
  • He always gets crazy ideas like that.
  • So you had to make the whole thing.
  • You had to have it made.
  • Yes, that's correct.
  • OK.
  • And let's talk about how you went about doing this.
  • All right, so you took pictures.
  • Yeah, we went to our neighborhood event center.
  • We bought our own McDonald's food to take the picture from.
  • And we wanted to make sure that it was like a stock image.
  • Like it looked legit.
  • Yeah.
  • And so we set up a tripod in front of our event center--
  • neighborhood event center.
  • And then we walked 10 feet away.
  • We take pictures.
  • And then we look back to see if it was good.
  • And we kept doing it.
  • I mean, this cost you some money.
  • Yeah.
  • All right.
  • So then, you're putting it in.
  • And you had to make it look like other posters, right?
  • That's correct.
  • Right.
  • And then you had to--
  • how did you put it up?
  • You had to put fake McDonald's uniforms on.
  • So that's pretty funny, Ellen.
  • We went to-- I went to a neighborhood-- or a Goodwill
  • nearby with my friend.
  • And he suggested I should go get a uniform,
  • so I could dress the part.
  • And I went back home.
  • We edited a fake badge.
  • I throw in a tie.
  • Well, wait.
  • They just have McDonald's uniforms for sale anywhere?
  • Yeah, in Goodwill.
  • It was weird.
  • It was the first location we went to.
  • And it was the right size for me too.
  • So it was meant to be.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • It sure was.
  • It was calling him.
  • Yeah, it was legit calling me.
  • And we went back to my house.
  • We made a fake badge.
  • Regional Interior Coordinator.
  • Yeah, I've made that up.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • I don't know--
  • Is that a position?
  • It should be now.
  • It should be now.
  • It sounds pretty real.
  • You already have a badge.
  • Maybe that's what you could be there.
  • OK.
  • So then let's show it going up.
  • Because you had to sneak this up.
  • And so the whole-- the restaurant's open, obviously.
  • You walk in there with this giant poster.
  • Nobody's asking any questions.
  • Nope.
  • All right.
  • And then you were careful, because you
  • put a certain kind of double stick
  • on it so you wouldn't damage the wall.
  • Yeah, we put adhesives in the back.
  • Because if it was to get caught, then we
  • didn't want to make any trouble and have them take it down
  • if they want to.
  • And make no damage to McDonald's whatsoever.
  • Right.
  • Because then that would have been vandalism.
  • Yeah.
  • I don't want to be accused for something like that.
  • No.
  • So you just-- all you did was put a poster up.
  • And it was up.
  • You must have been so nervous.
  • Yeah we were really nervous.
  • Not as nervous as we are right now.
  • Yeah.
  • We were lucky, because there's security cameras that are
  • facing different directions.
  • But that wall, in particular, there was no security cameras.
  • Conveniently.
  • No one cares about that wall anyway.
  • There were no security cameras protecting it.
  • And it needed something.
  • It was an empty wall.
  • Yeah.
  • And now, do you still go back to that McDonald's.
  • And did people recognize you, like you're
  • models or something?
  • When I first went there, I went with my mom.
  • And I was scared that the employee would notice me.
  • So I told my mom to go run over there and order for me,
  • while I hide in the corner or something.
  • Hide in a booth.
  • Your mother knew you did this?
  • Yeah, she did.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • She was not for it at first.
  • But then whenever I told her about it
  • and when the poster came--
  • I didn't tell her I bought it and shipped it over.
  • But when it came to my house, and she saw in person,
  • she couldn't help but laugh with my dad.
  • First of all, I can't believe no one noticed that,
  • and it stayed up for two months.
  • And then, have you heard from McDonald's?
  • Yes, actually.
  • Me and my friends visited that McDonald's location.
  • And we decided to eat.
  • And then, they called us.
  • It was about a week ago.
  • And they talked about--
  • as soon as they called-- it was Chris Stanley.
  • He works for corporate.
  • He called me.
  • And as soon as he answered-- or I answered,
  • I asked him if I was going to get in trouble.
  • Because I didn't know if I was or not.
  • And I wanted to make sure I wasn't.
  • And he said that I wasn't.
  • So that's all that matters.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • And when he told me, I was like--
  • because there was an event, right?
  • Yeah.
  • There is an event that was planned.
  • And he invited both of us to go over
  • to the event at the location.
  • At that restaurant.
  • Yeah.
  • And when he told me, I was like, maybe this is a trap.
  • And maybe cops are going to be there.
  • There's going to be handcuffs.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • But no.
  • The event was actually a great thing to happened.
  • They invited us to go over there.
  • They're going to actually take down the poster.
  • But they're going to renovate their whole restaurant.
  • The renovation was planned months before the poster.
  • Before this whole idea came up.
  • To show much more diversity, which is--
  • this is what you brought to their attention.
  • And Crazy Rich Asians was a really big influence on me.
  • It really pushed me over.
  • Because I watched the movie three times.
  • It's insane.
  • So we wanted to be like crazy middle class.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • That's the next movie.
  • Crazy Middle-Class Asians.
  • We're the stars.
  • Or maybe lower middle class.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • All right.
  • I have a couple of surprises for you.
  • We, first of all--
  • here's our billboard outside.
  • This is me.
  • And then we did this.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • We're loving it.
  • So second, I want you to try to sneak this into another
  • McDonald's.
  • Ooh!
  • This is some fan art.
  • A viewer named Tom sent this to me over the summer.
  • And I shouldn't keep this for myself.
  • This should go somewhere else.
  • So you're going to sneak that into a McDonald's.
  • All right?
  • And finally, McDonald's loves customers like you.
  • And they're committed to diversity
  • and want to represent all their customers,
  • so they're going to use the two of you in a marketing campaign.
  • And since--
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • Are you sure?
  • This can't be happening.
  • This can't be happening.
  • Not only that, but since you're in a campaign,
  • they need to pay you, right?
  • So you're each getting a check for $25,000.
  • Ooh!
  • [APPLAUSE]
