Abstract:

When can a brand benefit from laughter and is it possible to research a joke? Through a combination of consumer investigation and semiotic decoding, we were able to arrive at a framework that we believe will help brands navigate this complex space. While humor is very culture and space-specific, we believe this approach will help researchers and brand custodians know when to use it, as well as other emotional devices for their brand's storytelling.
