"It's the simple joys in life," Candace Payne wrote on Facebook as she posted a now-viral video of herself laughing hysterically in a Chewbacca mask.

That's certainly true from Payne -- all it takes is a mask, apparently, for her to laugh for a solid few minutes. In a video she recorded from the Kohl's parking lot, the mom explained that the mask, which has a moving mouth that emits Chewbacca's signature sounds, was for her and not her children. The video now has more than 45 million views.

Payne couldn't even hold in the laughs before she put the mask on.

"This is gonna be worth it -- I promise," she said as she giggled. "Maybe not, but it's worth it to me! But I had to share it with my friends on the internet-webs."

Payne really lost it when she started opening her mouth with the mask on, laughing hysterically along with Chewbacca's purring sounds. Watch below to see a person with true joie de vivre.
