Hence, the concept of celebrity endorsement is commonly used to help advertisement stands out from the surrounding media clutter in the communication process. Numerous researchers have proved empirically the effectiveness and the positive influence of the celebrity endorsement in advertising. However, the use of celebrity endorsers can also inflict several potential disadvantages. As an alternative, the use of non-celebrity endorsers as unknown individual should also be considered since they will consequently intensify the focus on the product, give a chance for high degree of control for company, cost advantage as well as possibility to have a better fit between the product and endorsers. Therefore, this research is undertaken to analyze the impact of celebrity and non-celebrity endorser credibility – attractiveness, trustworthiness and expertise in the advertisement with respect to attitude toward advertisement, attitude toward brand, and purchase intention of Indonesian consumers, particularly city of Bandung and Jakarta.

This result is in the consequence of several potential disadvantages of using celebrity endorsement which have been mentioned above.
