Moving Forward, Falling Back: How Perceptions of Motion Mask the Dangers of Unhealthy Consumption

We demonstrate that dynamic logos increase the consumption of vices. This effect is mediated by perceptions of consumption justifiability and moderated by directionality, consumers’ time-orientation, and their concern with future consequences. Results suggest that dynamic logos license consumers to indulge in the present by triggering an expected increase in well-begin.
