Chewbacca Mom’s unboxing video is just plain fun — and a hit for Hasbro


Laugh it up, fuzzball? Yes, yes she did.

A simple unboxing video of a Star Wars Chewbacca electronic mask made by Hasbro has been viewed millions of times in just a few weeks

Why? You’ll just have to watch.

“Chewbacca Mom” — aka Candace Payne of Grand Prairie, Texas — has been viewed more than 150 million times since May 19. The video starts slow — as many box-break videos do — but, don’t worry, you probably won’t finish it due to laughter.

The mask has become a hot commodity as its a $30 electronic piece (watch the video) but it’s sold out in many areas. On eBay, the market has come back to reality but it had sold for as much as $499.

After her viral fame, Payne has appeared on TV shows a few times and received gifts from companies involved as well as college scholarships for her kids.

Not bad for a product unboxing video.
