5-D: Does Humor in Advertising Trigger Competence and Warmth Inferences About Advertisers?

This study proposes that people make warmth and competence inferences about advertisers who express humor in advertising. Advertisers are perceived as competent but not warm when using incongruity to elicit laughter, as both warm and competent when using arousal humor, and as neither competent nor warm when using disparaging humor.
