I Love Chewbacca Mom! And So Do These Guys!

Published On May 24, 2016 | By Carrie Buchanan | Carrie Buchanan

This woman’s laugh is seriously contagious.  Now known all around the world as “Chewbacca Mom” big things have happened since she decided to post the live Facebook video.  She made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, met JJ Abrams, and has received a personal invitation from the man who plays Chewbacca in the Star Wars franchise – Peter Mayhew.

She posted the video to make sure everyone – including her kids – knew that the mask was hers.  She just wanted to treat herself for her birthday and wanted to keep the gift.

Since that video was posted it’s been seen almost 130 million times and broke the record for most viewed live video on Facebook.  And there’s more — Kohl’s representatives showed up to their home with gifts.  One rep handed her three more of the mask – one for each of her kids and her husband, other Star Wars goodies, and $2,500 in Kohl’s gift cards.
