Zuck invited Candace Payne to Facebook and had a big surprise in store.
Candace Payne, aka Chewbacca Mom, is living her best life. Last week, she posted a video of her unboxing a Chewbacca mask that she bought for herself at Kohl's. Her joy was so contagious that you could not open Facebook without seeing it all over your feed. 

A day later, Kohl's reached out to Candace, paid her a visit, and made sure her whole family was outfitted with Chewie masks, and this week, Candace has woken up the world on Good Morning America and helped James Corden get to work on time. 

After racking up 141 million views on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg invited Payne to Facebook headquarters on Tuesday, and he had a pretty big surprise for her.

Based on her reactions just trying on the mask, meeting Chewbacca IRL must have blown Candace's mind. (Zuck, for what it's worth, missed a really great Facebook Live opportunity.)

Candace, thank you for bringing pure joy into our lives. Please never change, and feel free to fill up our feeds whenever you want.

You don't know pure joy until you've seen this woman unbox a Chewbacca mask
At one point last year, you couldn’t even go into a grocery store without seeing something with a Star Wars: The Force Awakens label on it, and while the merchandise craze has mostly died down ahead of Rogue One’s release, Star Wars toys are still bringing fans joy.
