Abstract: This research builds on the study of an advertisement-evoked imagination scale developed by Dewi and Ang (2015). The imagination scale contains four types of imagination, that is, benefit-anticipatory imagination, emotional-bonding imagination, symbolic imagination, and mind-wandering imagination. In this paper, the proposed constructs of the imagination types are related to other relevant constructs that already exist in the marketing literature. The purpose of this research is twofold. First, it establishes the nomological validity of the imagination measures by placing it in the context of hedonic-utilitarian concepts proposed by Holbrook and Hirschman (1983). Second, the research empirically studies the effect of a situational factor, which is concrete versus abstract advertisement execution, on imagination elicitation. The study is an experiment which employs a mixed factor design involving eight sub-groups of participants. The results of the research demonstrate the nomological validity of the imagination scale where the four types of imagination were elicited in response to a hedonic/utilitarian product depicted in the advertisement and situational factors (which are abstract versus concrete advertisements). © 2020, Gadjah Mada University.
