This study explores whether the positioning of the horizon in panoramic ads affects food attractiveness. We propose that (un)healthy food may benefit from panoramic appeals showing a low (high) horizon because both, a (un)healthy food and a low (high) horizon, induce abstract (concrete) construal and as such generate processing fluency.
