The use of Instagram as a digital marketing medium has become increasingly popular since the emergence of the microcelebrity phenomenon or commonly referred to as Instagram celebrity (celebgram). In Indonesia, the use of celebrity endorsements has increased rapidly and has become a trend in the online business world. Impulse buying is one of the unique characteristics possessed by the Indonesian people, namely purchases that are made spontaneously, without planning and without careful consideration. Despite the fact that more and more companies or online business people are using the services of celebgrams for endorsements, scientific knowledge about the effect of celebgram endorsements on impulsive buying behavior is still limited.
