Chewbacca Mama

I was reading a story this past Friday night about this video. Originally posted on Facebook, the “viral vid” got over 77,000,000 hits within 24 hours, which for a non-YouTube video is quite extraordinary in this day and age.

Candace Payne is the mother donning the mask, and she’s now an overnight media sensation, appearing on Good Morning America yesterday. It’s good to see one of the “ordinary people” in the world getting a shot at fame, and I don’t mean that as a jab at her. Our society loves to “create” the movers and shakers of the day, so it’s nice to see  an organic movement such as this get national (if not global) attention.

Good work, if you can get it, right?
