Chewbacca Mom Gets A Lesson From J.J. Abrams

Star Wars

(Radio.com) The Internet's favorite masked mother Chewbacca Mom (aka Candace Payne) drove James Corden to work on Monday (May 23) and she got a surprise visit from J.J. Abrams during the ride.

Payne originally posted a video on May 19 for family and friends after she purchased a Chewbacca mask. Her sheer delight and riotous laugh over finding and wearing the mask quickly went viral.

On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Payne drove the host to work while he complained that the mask actually didn't sound anything like Chewbacca. Abrams appears in the backseat. "I gotta disagree," he says. He then pops on his own mask and proceeds to give her directions about how to be the best Chewbacca possible.

Later on the show, Payne sat with Corden on the couch and spoke about how the video went viral. When she originally posted it, she texted her friend after it received 1,000 views and excitedly shared that number. She had no idea how huge the video would get. It eventually reached 140 million views in three days. Watch the video here.
