To be fair, there are plenty of examples of "simple joys" on the web. Just type "baby laughing" into YouTube and you'll be flooded with wonderful videos. But Candace Payne's Facebook live video showing off her recent purchase of an electronic Chewbacca mask, recently made the Internet's collective day

If you haven't seen it yet, here's what we're talking about:

Since it was posted on Thursday, Candace's unbridled jubilation in the parking lot of a Kohl's has been viewed over 100 million times and shared over a million times. 

In the video Candace says the Chewbacca mask is hers and she did not buy it for her children, but that they will probably take it away from her. On Friday, Kohl's dropped by her house to make sure that wouldn't happen. They showed up with more of the Chewbacca masks and a load of other Star Wars toys to boot. 

Kohl's reports the electronic mask sold out of stores quickly since the video gained momentum. It's hard to find in other online retailers too. It's listed as out of stock on Toys R Us's website as well as Walmart's. Some enterprising sellers on Amazon have jacked the price of the approximately $20 mask up to nearly $200 based on the video's popularity.

Regardless of whether you can get your hands on the mask that brought so much joy to Candace, we can all still appreciate 'the happiest Chewbacca.'
