Brand Sacredness and Its Cultural Underpinnings

This research contributes to prior literature by experimentally investigating brand sacredness and uncovering its cultural underpinnings. Our findings demonstrate that salience of cultural concepts can increase the sacredness of iconic brands. Furthermore, individuals who value the ideas that traditional culture provides are more likely to ascribe sacredness to brands.
