    Brad Esposito, writing for Buzzfeed, on how the famous Chewbacca talking masks are now selling out all over the place. I want one.

    The mask is now out of stock at Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and Kohl’s, meaning you’ll have to turn to eBay if you’re desperate, where prices continue to rocket well beyond the original $20 to $30. In less than two days, more than 100 million people have watched a video of Texas mom Candace Payne trying on a Chewbacca mask in her car and laughing hysterically.

    It's kinda cute and I get its feel good. But I was expecting it to be a lot better and funnier when I finally watched it after seeing it being shared on Facebook soooo many times over the weekend

    I hate star wars (put down the pitch forks) and I still love this. Between how goofy she looks and how much fun she's having, it's impossible not to laugh along and get in a good mood with this video. I mentioned to my friends how Kohls gifted her family with more masks and toys etc and I said 'its the least they can do, she just gave them so much free publicity'....didn't expect THIS though!
