Chewbacca mask viral video is pure joy

Posted on

If we’ve learned anything from the Internet, it’s that no matter how hard you try, nobody can predict what will be the next viral sensation. Take Candace, for example: One moment she’s just a normal mother doing some shopping at Kohl’s, but once she stumbles onto a Chewbacca mask she unlocks the key to Internet fame.

A video that Candace Payne shared on her Facebook page Thursday shows the woman in her car unboxing and putting on a Chewbacca mask. She immediately bursts into an infectious laughter once she places the mask on her face, exuberantly yelling “This is worth every penny!” in the midst her hysterics. 

To be fair, this isn’t any ordinary Chebacca mask — the lower jaw moves along with the wearer’s mouth and emits the signature Wookie growling sound when opened. Candace’s joy in the mask is so contagious that the video has already gotten more than 40 million views less than a day since it’s been posted.
