If you're going to pull a prank, you might as well do it right. The fake McDonald's poster that 21-year-old student Jevh Maravilla shared on Twitter on Monday is the absolute perfect example of this.

On a YouTube video Maravilla posted in August after he first carried out the prank, he explained a little more about the motivation behind it. "If you haven't noticed, there isn't a lot of Asians represented in media," he says in the clip. "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.'" After that they staged the photo, made a few edits, and bought themselves an old McDonald's shirt in a thrift store. Then they made their move. Here's the full video: "To this day, I can say that the poster has been up since," concludes Maravilla, "and I really hope they never take it down. "Remember, folks: all races deserve recognition. And I guess I did my part." WATCH: This student uses nothing but playing cards to create epic monuments
Everyone loved the powerful ad. The only problem is, people were confused about who the commercial was for. Many took to Twitter to mistakenly give Dove the credit for ... a Twitter ad.

After noticing the blatant sexism displayed in a lot of vintage ads, he saw a link between then and now; and took it upon himself to correct it.Recreating some of the ads, he reversed the gender roles and put men into the places women historically occupied. As thrilling as it is confronting, Rezkallah calls the project In a Parallel Universe.“Last Thanksgiving, I was visiting my family in New Jersey and I overheard my uncles talk about how women are better off cooking, taking care of the kitchen, and fulfilling ‘their womanly duties,’” the 31-year-old wrote on his website. “Although I know that not all men like my uncles think that way I was surprised to learn that some still do.“It’s also true that those ads were in the ’50s and some people perceive them as vintage it felt at that moment that their essence is still present in the folds of today’s modern social fabric, so I went on to imagine a parallel universe, where roles are inverted and men are given a taste of their own sexist poison.”Click through the gallery and let us know what you think by commenting below and tweeting @YahooStyleCA!

A new advertisement has opened a Pandora’s box for the Danish jewelry brand of the same name. “We could not believe it, but unfortunately it’s all true,” they captioned their photo of the advertisement.
New research shows that while sexy ads can indeed create media attention and online buzz, that doesn’t necessarily translate into customers buying the product.
Puzzlingly, the caption below it reads, “Because we are against racism, we will eat both of them, not only one. Although the post has since been deleted, social media users were quick to spot and call out Dunkin’ Donuts on their controversial ad. "White is full beauty, Brown is half beauty." Racism lies in the smallest things, sometimes.

Judging from the exuberant expression on her face, it seems that the Divine Miss M feels the same way. The famed actress and singer, who was present at the designer’s epic Americana-themed show this past September at the Ziegfeld Theater, was snapped by David Sims (and styled by Katie Grand) wearing an oversized coat featuring a retro print of a woman screaming. This season Middler joins the ranks of Sandra Bernhard and the designer’s new favorite pal Lana Wachowski. “To this day, I still credit Bette Midler (unbeknownst to her) with a large part of my foray into fashion design,” Jacobs continued in his post.
A new Barbie ad — which shows young girls aspiring to careers like professor, veterinarian, businesswoman, and soccer coach — kicks off Mattel’s latest campaign for the iconic dolls, but critics say that while the “Imagine the Possibilities” spot may be adorable, it’s still wishful thinking. In the ad, which was posted on the official Barbie Facebook page last week, young girls take on their dream careers in front of unsuspecting audiences.
