Candace Payne has comically been named the Happy Chewbacca Mom as one of her social media posts goes national.

Her joy after putting on a Chewbacca mask has gone viral after going live on Facebook.

Candace went live from a Kohl's parking lot after she said she had to return a few items.

Yet, she picked up one item in particular that made her so excited that she said she had to share with all of her friends online - a Chewbacca mask.

The mask's mouth moves as her mouth moves, and even makes the iconic Chewbacca sound each time she opens her mouth.

So far, her video has been viewed more than 50 million times, and shared more than 1.6 million times.
