Beyond Seeing Mcdonald’S Fiesta Menu: the Role of Accent in Brand Sincerity of Ethnic Products and Brands

We find that Hispanic accent’s prosodic features (e.g., intonation) are perceived as more sincere and, thus, induce higher brand sincerity. These effects are moderated by brand and product ethnicity. When brand and product ethnicity are incongruent, Hispanic accent induces greater brand sincerity for Hispanic products, yet not for Hispanic brands.
