2-K: Consumer Responses to Anthropomorphized Brand Alliances

We explore the impact of brand anthropomorphism on consumers’ perceptions and reactions toward brand alliance. In three studies, we demonstrate that when a human schema was activated (vs. not), consumers felt more negatively about the termination of a brand alliance, due to the relationship norm associated with humanlike alliance relationship.
