You may have quite a few references to munch over by now.
One indicator of the positive contribution of celebrities to a product's sales is the repetition of the advertisement involving the celebrity, and the successful (supposedly)campaign ad. In India, the affiliation of a celebrity like the cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar, to a major brand like TVS, seems to be a successful one. The ad featuring Sachin is often repeated in popular print media's like newspapers, mags etc. Also, the product seems to be a top seller too.
Therefore, one idea for you is to search for positive correlations between the ads using celebrities, and the sales figures of the company promoted (with particular reference to the product projected in the campaign). In the case of TVS it was the popular bike 'TVS Victor'.
Hope these thoughts help!!
