1E Skip My Empathy: Impact of Goal and Emotion on Ad­-Skipping Rate and Ad ­Effectiveness

We examined the effectiveness of emotional appeals in reducing ad-skipping rate. The results showed that consumers with an emotional (vs. informational) goal for watching YouTube videos showed stronger empathy, which in turn reduced ad-skipping rate. We found that this effect was prevalent among those with a higher tendency to welcome emotion.
