Magic Hands? How Hand-Holding Appeal, Food Type, and Contamination Effects Impact Food Advertising Effectiveness

This research examines whether different hand-holding appeals (verbal hand vs. visual hand with product directly vs. visual hand with product indirectly) in food advertising affects product evaluation. The product type (vice vs. virtue) was tested as the moderator. The contamination effect is found as the underlying mechanism.
