4-Q: the Use of Ethnically Ambiguous Models in Advertising to Preserve Consumer Well-Being in an Organic Multicultural Market

Our research compares a multiculturated consumers’ feeling of well-being when evaluating advertisements with differing variations of ethnic targeting. Consumers within a multicultural market (South Africa) have a greater feeling of consumer wellbeing when evaluating an advertisement containing ethnically ambiguous models compared to models of multiple ethnicities or individual ethnic models.
