MILWAUKEE (AP) — Kohl’s Corp. has handed a Texas mom whose video showing her donning a Chewbacca mask went viral a pile of Star Wars toys.
WTMJ-TV reported Sunday that Candace Payne mentioned in the video that she got the mask at her local Kohl’s as a gift to herself but was worried her son might claim it for himself.
The video, posted on Payne’s Facebook page on Thursday, shows Payne laughing wildly as she wears the mask. It’s been viewed more than 130 million times, earning Payne the nickname “Happy Chewbacca Mom.”
Kohl’s representatives traveled to Payne’s home and gave her more masks for her kids, Star Wars toys, $2,500 in gift cards and 10,000 reward points.
