Abstract: Video-sharing is one of the most popular applications on the internet, the development of which subverts the traditional information diffusion path. Online video-sharing advertising emerges quickly at the same time. Quick online video sharing and diffusing of advertising depend heavily on its entertainment content and its display format. This article classifies the entertainment content of online video-sharing advertising (VSA) into three kinds, namely, humour and funny content (HFC), focus event content (FEC), and sex and nudity content (SNC); and classifies the display format of online VSA into realistic format and anthropomorphic format. Based on this, the authors have conducted a research on the possible relationship between these two factors and how they influence the effects of online video-sharing advertising. This experimental study confirms that entertainment content and display format are the most critical factors to audiences in sharing and diffusing the online VSA. It also finds out that if HFC is used as the entertainment content of online VSA, the best display format would be the realistic format; and if SNC is used as the entertainment content of online VSA, the best display format of online VSA would be the anthropomorphic format.
