I Could’ve Been a Star – Besides Your Kids and Pets, What Gives You THIS Much Joy?
Unless you've been under a rock, away from social media or on a different planet since Friday, you now know the pure, unadulterated joy this woman expressed with a particular Star Wars mask.
Candace Payne's video is now the most-watched live stream Facebook video EVER. As of last night, it had been viewed over 133 MILLION TIMES.
In a classy move of actually acknowledging their customers, Kohl's saw the video, and sent three employees to her house with a bunch of Star Wars toys for her kids...along with $2500 in gift cards.
I actually found this mask back in October on a Target run. I took a quick video of it, sent it to my fellow-Star-Wars-fan brother, and that was the end of it. Here's proof (it's only date-stamped in my phone...but I PROMISE you, it was 10/30/15).
Little did I know, all I had to do was put the thing on and laugh my face off in the parking lot. I could've gotten free stuff! :)
The biggest take-away from the original video, to me, is the 100% pure, unadulterated JOY this woman exhibits. She's the happiest woman on earth for these four minutes.
BESIDES your kids and pets....what gives YOU that joy, bliss, giggle-attack, awesome feeling?
(PS....it's gonna be tough to find one of these masks now...since the video, Kohl's Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us are all sold out online....)
