2-F: Are the Eyes the Mirror to the Soul?: the Influence of Eye Gaze Direction on Narrative Transportation and Self-Brand Connection

We aim to demonstrate the influence of ad model’s gaze direction (direct versus averted) on consumer self-brand connection. With two studies, we demonstrate that averted (versus direct) gaze enhances narrative transportation, which drives self-brand connection. We also examine the moderating role of rational (vs. emotional) appeals on this relationship.
