Does Thematic Advertising Congruence/Incongruence Matter? Insights From a Qualitative and an Experimental Study
We investigate the level of thematic congruence between advertised products and media under forced versus incidental/ in vivo exposure. Forced exposure was significantly more likely to result in conscious attention towards congruence than incidental/ in vivo exposure. Participants were also more likely to consciously focus incongruence than congruence under incidental/ in vivo exposure. Implications are discussed.
