WATCH: More joy for viral ‘Chewy’ mum

If you got a good chuckle out of American mum Candace Payne laughing while wearing her Chewbacca mask, imagine the giggle you’ll get when seeing her daughter doing the same…

Ms Payne and her children have received a stack of Star Wars merchandise, after a clip of the blogger cackling at the Wookiee’s sound effect went viral.

In the video, Ms Payne said she had bought the mask for herself and didn’t want to share it with anyone.


As soon as getting in the car after buying the mask from department store Kohl’s, she started filming herself opening the box and putting it on.

The clip broke Facebook’s record of the most watched live video and has now been seen more than 130 million times.

To thank her for the ‘free plug’, Kohl’s delivered boxes of the now sold-out masks, along with a hoard of other Star Wars merchandise, to her home.

“We don’t want you to stress about sharing your Chewbacca mask,” a Kohl’s representative told Ms Payne.

Ms Payne and her two young children broke out in cheers and laughs when they were gifted with the goodies.

The store also gave Ms Payne US$2,500 in gift cards and 10,000 reward points.
