For purposes of this analysis, cognitive dissonance will be understood as a process whereby the advertiser is able to evoke a key level of differential, as well as direct and indirect appreciation for this, within the mind of the individual who is impacted by such advertising.

Moreover, three specific academic studies will be utilized as a means of drawing inference upon the hypothesis of this research which regards the understanding that celebrity influences a great deal upon the level in which a potential consumer has to interact with the given good/service/product.
Likewise, the first of these studies which will be engaged is with respect to the level to which consciousness factors into the way in which the potential consumer engages with celebrity endorsement and/or celebrity suggestion.
