I Don’T Care If You’Re Committed, But “We” Do: How Group Brand Connections Affect Access-Based Brand Extension Evaluations

Observers with group brand connection evaluate extensions that allow users to access (vs. own) the brand based on its users’ perceived commitment, not fit with the parent brand.
