You may not know the name, but you definitely know the face (behind the mask). Just in case you have been living under a rock, Candace Payne bought herself a Chewbacca mask and tried it on during a Facebook LIVE post. Well, overnight it became the most viewed Facebook LIVE post of all time.
Since then, she has had a few perks; she drove James Corden to work, was on GMA, toured the Facebook campus, and obviously got a trip to Disney World.
Thanks to the folks at Money, we have an actual dollar amount on going viral…
