Need a laugh this Monday morning? Just take a look at this video and you’ll be grabbing your sides.

Texas mom, Candance Payne stopped by a local Khol’s to pick up some items, one of which included a Star Wars Chewbacca mask. After making her purchase, she decided to share her gift with the world on Facebook Live. Posted on Thursday (May 19), the video has since gone viral with over 136 million views, 1.8 million likes, and over 3 million shares in just four days.

Titled “It’s the simple joys in life…”, Payne is shown trying on the mask and bursting into uncontrollable bouts of laughter. Following the popularity of the video, the mask in question is now out of stock.

Payne also appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her new found fame. When asked what made her try on the mask, she stated, “I’ve got 30 minutes before I have to be responsible and pick up my children from school. And once they see this, I’ll never be able to see it again.” Spoken like a true parent.
