Last week, Candace Payne shared a Facebook video in which she wore a "talking" Chewbacca mask and laughs in a hysterrical tone throughout the video. 

The video quickly became the most-watched Facebook Live video of all time, with over 135 million views and has been shared over 3 million times (at the time of this writing). Watch the video below: 


It's easy to see how this video has gone viral. This makes me want to see her play a female Wookiee in an actual Star Wars film. Here's what Payne said to her followers on Facebook: 

"Today has been a whirlwind. I'm grateful for every kind of word and comment even if I haven't replied. Y'all. OVERWHELMED with gratitude. Let's keep belly laughing again. Never imagined finding my 'simple joy' would land me more VIEWS on a little FB video than Mark Zuckerberg has followers. INSANE. Find your 'simple you'! Good Day. Now Good Night. It's all love."

As Entertainment Weekly reported: since Payne's statement on Friday, the Chewbacca mask has been purchased in a massive scale. Major retailers have run out of stock on the product, and Amazon are asking for $200 per item of the stock they have left. I hope she continues to make joyful videos like this. Even non-Star Wars fans would smile watching this.
