This study examines how visual and musical stimuli contribute to perceived trendiness of the commercial across native Chinese- and English-speakers. Research results indicate that, though visual stimuli have stronger effects on both Chinese- and English-speakers, visual stimuli have stronger effects on Chinese-speakers than English-speakers. These findings are consistent with suggested differences between the Chinese and English language that could have affected the processing orientation of native speakers. The implications of the results are discussed.
