Teens goof on McDonald's with classy prank

Who's up for a classy night out at McDonald's? These guys!

Two English teens decided to turn a regular McDonald's dinner into a four-star affair by bringing their own plates, tablecloth and fake candles, the Consumerist reported.

At first, management of the Golden Arches failed to see the humor in Cameron Ford and Adam Welland's prank.

Gawker reported that staff asked the pair to leave because they brought their own cutlery — apparently a no-no in the kingdom of Ronald McDonald. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the young diners were allowed to stay.

"We both just thought it would be hilarious to bring formal gear to such an informal place, and it developed from there," Welland told Huffington Post UK. "I think we would definitely do it again, however not in the same place. For it to remain funny we would need variety in venue."

Cameron tweeted out a photo of the dining adventure (above), which quickly went viral. 

"Cheers to my beautiful boyfriend on our special night. Love you Adam," tweeted Cameron Ford.

The two later wrote on Twitter that they aren't actually gay.

A rep for McDonald's spoke to HuffPo UK about the stunt. "We are happy to provide plastic cutlery to those customers who request it," the rep said. "We ask that any items brought in by customers, such as cups or plates, are used responsibly and taken away with them after use."

No word on whether diners are allowed to bring in their own violists. We suggest checking with management beforehand.
