"Chewbacca Mom" & J.J. Abrams Bring Non-Stop Laughter to James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke"
That mask was worth every penny.
On May 19, Candace Payne posted a video on Facebook to show off her new purchase: a talking Chewbacca mask. Unbeknownst to her, her genuine excitement would dub her “Chewbacca Mom” and make her go down in viral internet history with the video receiving over 142 million views in less than a week. This earned her an appearance on The Late Late Show’s “Carpool Karaoke” segment, seats oft reserved for high-profile celebrities. In this edition, the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens himself — J.J. Abrams — joins them to help everyone give their best Wookie impression. Watch the fun ensue up above.
