Chewbacca Mom meets Chewbacca in real life while on field trip to Facebook
Zuck invited Candace Payne to Facebook and had a big surprise in store.
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.
