Candace Payne, who broke a Facebook Live record simply by donning a Chewbacca face mask, was presented with a custom-made action figure doll by Hasbro when she and her family visited the company’s Rhode Island headquarters last Friday.
The doll features Payne in a Wookie outfit and a removable Chewbacca mask. It has 13 phrases, including, “That’s not me making that noise, it’s the mask,” “I am such a happy Chewbacca,” and, of course, Payne’s signature laugh, a Hasbro spokeswoman said.
Payne rose to fame after she filmed herself wearing Hasbro’s Chewbacca electronic mask while parked in her car. The video became the most-watched Facebook live video on Facebook with more than 141 million views.
The video helped her garner an invitation to Facebook headquarters, as well as a carpool appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”
