At the same time, young adults’ preference for celebrity spokesperson in terms of nationality was examined while investigating if the nationality of celebrity spokesperson will affect their brand selection or not. Researcher conducted this research with quantitative research method, which is online survey. By using the purposive non-probability method, 100 young adult respondents from Klang Valley were selected as the sample of this research. The results from this study showed that celebrity spokesperson in advertising does bring positive impact which includes brand and product awareness, brand recall, purchase intention and positive perception towards brand and product among young adults.
