“It’s the simple joys in life.”

That was the caption Candace Payne wrote to go with a Facebook Live video after she bought a Star Wars Chewbacca mask at Kohl’s on Thursday.

And she’s not kidding — we’re getting a lot of joy out of watching how happy she is!

“I’d like to say that I bought this for my son that would really, really want it. And let’s be honest, he’ll probably confiscate it from me. … He’ll probably take it from me. 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!” Payne said during the live stream.

The mask makes the Wookie’s iconic cry when the mouth is opened and closed, which thrilled Payne to no end. She expressed the simply joy about two minutes into the video.

And as much as Payne loved the mask, users on social media have eaten up the video. As of Friday morning, the video has been watched more than 22 million times and been shared more than 700,000 times.
