A Woman in a Chewbacca Mask Broke a Facebook Record

A woman in Texas bought a Chewbacca mask last week that makes Wookie sounds when you talk.  Then she went on Facebook and livestreamed herself trying it on . . . and now it’s the most-viewed livestream EVER on Facebook.

As of last night, it had over 130 million views.  She got it at Kohl’s, so then they posted a video where three employees go to her house with a bunch of “Star Wars” toys for her kids, plus $2,500 in gift cards.

They also gave her family three MORE Chewbacca masks, which are hard to come by now . . . Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us are all sold out online because of the video.
