The Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s was overrun by dozens of inflatable kangaroos Monday.

32 inflatable kangaroos were planted outside the building.

The stunt was organized by an Australian community group.

They are objecting a plan to build a McDonald’s in their hometown of Tecoma, Australia which sits next to a national park.

They say putting a McDonald’s there would be like building one next to Mount Rushmore.

Wednesday, they’ll deliver 100,000 petition signatures to McDonald’s headquarters in Oakbrook, asking McDonald’s to put its new restaurant somewhere else.
