A woman wearing a Chewbacca mask is the most viewed live Facebook video ever.

Candace Payne from Texas has become a viral sensation after sharing the moment she bought a Chewbacca mask from store Kolh's.

Unboxing the mask within her car, Candace finds so much amusement from her new gadget ending with uncontrollable laughter.

Her positivity is infectious as she tells viewers this was an impulse buy, which will now be her late birthday present.

As we wait patiently Candace puts the mask over her head and she begins opening her mouth which delivers that iconic Chewbacca noise.

She cannot stop laughing and neither can anybody else...

The live video gained more than 134 million views with many commenting their amusement as Candace shares ‘the simple joys in life’.

Lisa said: “I’m not sure what I love more… the super cool amazing mask or the level of your joy!”

Another said: “That’s the happiest Wookie in the galaxy.”

Since the video went live a Kohl’s spokesperson told CNBC: "We have received an overwhelming amount of interest in the Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens Chewbacca Electronic Mask by Hasbro since Candace posted her funny and light hearted video.

The masks have since sold out in Walmart, Kohl’s and Target in America.

Kohl’s later surprised Candace with something special - gifts including two more Chewbacca masks for her children, gift cards and Kohl’s reward points.
