Business merchandise has led the market onto a new wayonline shopping. Online chat now becomes a part of social media, which includes image posting, shares links and creates personal online space.

The world-known parks like Universal Studio and Disneyland are the most representative of the combination of moving images and the art made. Sometimes it is a short clip from the actual movie, for example, the Transformer, where bad guys are damaging the city and good guys are fighting with them. .
