You'll never be as happy as this woman is with her Chewbacca mask

“Oh, I’m such a happy Chewbacca!”

IT’S THE LITTLE things. Really.

Yesterday, Star Wars fan Candace Payne bought herself a little present, a Chewbacca mask that roars whenever you open your mouth.

I’d like to say that I bought this for my son that would really really want it. But at the end of the day, this is mine that I bought and I’m going to keep it for my own!

She takes it out, tries it on, and is absolutely delighted – and her joy has completely infected Facebook. See for yourself:


According to Tech Insider, Candace’s video is now the most-watched Facebook Live stream of all time, with 45 million views and over one million shares.

The clip has even found its way to Peter Mayhew (AKA Chewbacca himself) who responded to the video on Reddit:

If that doesn’t make your Friday, we don’t know what will.
