Over a 100 million people have watched the video of a woman laughing hysterically in a Chewbacca mask, making it the most viewed Facebook Live video ever, according to BBC
American mum Candace Payne picked up a little treat for herself at a store called Kohls in Texas. All she wanted to do was try on the Chewbacca mask and share how funny it was with her friends and family on Facebook. Little did she know the video would go viral on the social networking site and make her an overnight internet sensation.
The original live video posted by Ms Payne was viewed over 134 million times. She later also shared the video on a separate page of hers and this too received over 21,000 views. Reports suggest the same mask is now out of stock.
