Humorous Consumer Complaints
We differentiate humorous complaining from its non-humorous counterpart. Three studies reveal that consumers exposed to humorous complaints are more likely to: admire the complainer, enjoy the complaint, and share the complaint. Although humorous complaints had a similar negative effect on brand attitudes, they were more influential in brand choices.
