Chewbacca Mask Sold Out Online After Woman's Video Goes Super Viral
Sorry "Star Wars" fans!
— -- After a video of a mother wearing a Chewbacca mask went viral, the mask is sold out online.
People could not stop watching Candace Payne laugh hysterically while trying on her newly purchased mask. The "Star Wars" fan's video went viral after she posted it to Facebook on May 19. As of today, the mother's video has been viewed more than 130 million times.
Now many have followed suit and purchased the Hasbro-designed mask, which retails for $44.99. Apparently, it's sold out in every online retailer, including Kohls, the store from which Payne originally purchased hers for her son.
According to its website, the product is "out of stock."
Amazon does have some masks in stock thanks to private sellers. Still, the price tag for those masks range from $159.99 to $255.
In the video, Payne explains why her son won't be able to enjoy this mask, which has adjustable straps and makes a roaring noise.
"At the end of the day, this is mine that I bought and I'm going to keep it for my own," Payne says of the mask before gleefully trying it on.
She later adds in between laughs, "I'll let you play with it. I'm not a bad mom."
