The woman responsible for the year’s best viral video is making the most of her time in the spotlight.
The internet fell in love with Candace Payne when a video of her wearing a Chewbacca mask — and getting really, really excited about it — became the most watched Facebook Live video of all time, with over 142 million views.
Cynical viewers could point out that the video is simply a great ad for a Star Wars toy, but it’s more than that — the clip has gone viral because of Candace’s sheer, contagious joy and genuine enthusiasm.
Now she’s appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, in a mash-up of his popular Carpool Karaoke series and her own viral video.
If you like James Corden, Star Wars, or laughter, it’s a must-watch — especially once a special guest shows up in the backseat. Watch the clip at the top of the page!
Candance also appeared in The Late Late Show studio, where Corden read her a note from the ‘real’ Chewbacca, Peter Mayhew!
