Star Wars fans comes from all walks of life - even moms.

Meet Candace Payne, a mother of two children from Texas, USA. She puts on a talking Chewbacca mask that she bought from Kohl’s and spends most of the video laughing outrageously while the mask makes Chewbacca-like sounds.

Surprisingly, her livestream video has gone viral and even set a record for the most watched Facebook live ever. Chewbacca Mom, as she is now called, has appeared on several TV shows such as Good Morning America and The Late Late Show With James Corden. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has also invited her to visit Facebook Headquarters.

In response to the popularity of her video and the free publicity generated for their company, Kohls has rewarded Chewbacca Mom with $2,500 worth of gift cards, 10,000 points rewards, Star Wars toys, and three more Chewbacca masks for the whole family.

Her Facebook video with a caption "It's the simple joys in life...." has racked up more than 157 million views with more than 3 million shares now since it was posted on May 19, 2016.
