Unless you’ve been disconnected from the Internet this past weekend – and who does that, am I right? – you’ve probably seen and shared the hilarious Chewbacca mom video on Facebook.

Her contagious laugh is what turned the video into a viral sensation that has since surpassed 140 million views.

Payne reenacts her Chewbacca video at the beginning of the sketch, so you’ll think it’s just a rerun of her video. But then the camera pulls out, and we see an impatient Corden, who’s looking to get to work.
