This article explores Indonesian children’s views about humorous advertising on YouTube in the light of advertising effectiveness. The participants were 840 children aged 7 to 12 years, who were students at both public and private elementary schools. The study was carried out in a natural setting. The children watched a short movie with humorous advertising videos before and after. Next, a survey assessed their perceptions of the advertisements and the advertising effectiveness using essential indicators such as attitude toward the ad and attitude toward the brand. The data were analyzed with simple regression and analysis of variance (ANOVA). This study contributes to research on humorous advertising by introducing the perspectives of Indonesian children. It offers valuable input for those interested in commercials, both academics and practitioners, especially those who work in the Indonesian context.
