One mum’s simple Facebook video has taken the world by storm – and for once, it is for all the right reasons.

Candace Payne, from Texas, live streamed a video to Facebook Live showing her try on a Star Wars Chewbacca mask while sitting in her car.

The minute she puts on the mask – which howls like the sci-fi character – Candace can’t contain her happiness, or her laughter.

The mum-pf-two’s hysterical giggles have been viewed more than 100 million times, making it the most-watched Facebook Live video ever.

At the beginning of the video, Candace reveals how this particular purchase is for her, not her kids.

“However, this is mine. At the end of the day, this is mine that I bought and I’m going to keep it for my own!

“This is part of my birthday joy. I can’t wait to show you. I am in a parking lot and people are literally looking at me like crazy, and I don’t even care.”
