The Star Wars fan whose Facebook Live video streamed from a Kohl's parking lot made her a star visited California this week, hitting up both Lucasfilm in the Presidio and Facebook's Menlo Park Headquarters. According to CBS 5, her video was so popular that it got the Texas mom invitations to each of the Bay Area spots.
Candace Payne streamed herself trying on a Chewbacca mask and laughing uproariously every time the battery-powered mask made a Wookiee sound, and in doing so, reports USA Today, became a Facebook star with the most-watched Facebook Live video ever.
"We invited Candace Payne whose Chewbacca mask video got 141 million views and is now the most-watched Facebook Live video ever to come by Facebook HQ today," wrote Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg yesterday. "And we had a fun surprise for her!"
That surprise was a person in a Wookie suit, and the two (Payne and the Wookiee suit actor, not Payne and Zuckerberg) clowned around for the cameras.
Before swinging by Facebook's headquarters, Payne visited Lucasfilm's Presidio offices and checked out the famous Yoda fountain.
"OMG," she said upon seeing the statue. "Y'all! My world is officially the weirdest thing in the entire galaxy."
