Increasing Persuasion While Decreasing Recognition: Exploring the Interactive Effects of Product Placements on Consumers in a State of Ego-Depletion

The present study explored the impact of ego-depletion on responses to product placements. Participants watched a sitcom with multiple product placements. Results showed that ego-depletion increased brand attitudes toward and reduced recognition of placed products with a low plot connection, a pattern consistent with past research on ego-depletion and persuasion.
