This research examines an emotion that advertising researchers have largely neglected. In particular, we explore in two parallel experiments the role of disgust in the context of fast-food restaurant advertising. A follow-up study then determines that the theoretical concept of disgust captures only a narrow aspect of the meaning this term holds for laypeople. Both the narrow and broadened notions of disgust hold implications for advertising theory and practice.
