|Keywords:||Economic conditions;Greece;Humorous advertising;Irritation;Surprise||Category:||Media and Communications||Field:||Social Sciences||Issue Date:||1-Oct-2016||Publisher:||De Gruyter Mouton||Source:||Humor, 2016, Volume 29, Issue 4, Pages 483-505||metadata.dc.doi:||10.1515/humor-2015-0111||Abstract:||A two-phase experimental study investigates the role of economic conditions on humor generation and on the relationship between perceived humor and attitude toward the ad (Aad). It designates that the economic context affects the generation of humor and the relationship between perceived humor and Aad; TV commercials can more effectively create humor as well as positive Aad in an expansion rather than in a recession. The generation of humor during a recession, requires a combination of high levels of perceived surprise and low levels of perceived irritation. In the same vein, attitude towards a humorous ad, in a recession, increases significantly only when there is high perceived humor and low perceived irritation. Specific managerial and theoretical implications are discussed.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9328||ISSN:||09331719||Rights:||© 2016 by De Gruyter Mouton 2016.||Type:||Article|
