Things We Saw Today: This Woman Is Adorably Excited About Her New Chewbacca Mask

"It's the simple joys."

This woman bought herself a Chewbacca mask as a birthday present to herself, and this video of her unwrapping it and putting it on went viral because it’s adorable as all get out. She can’t contain her excitement and happiness about this mask, and it’s contagious! If you need a pick-me-up today, this is it. (via Buzzfeed)

  • The international version of the Ghostbusters trailer debuted today, and it’s getting some high praise from a voice you can trust!
  • In weird DMCA takedown news, Fox apparently grabbed a clip from YouTube to use in a Family Guy episode, then once the episode aired, they turned back around and slapped the original video with a takedown notice. And it actually worked. Don’t try to logic that out. It will not work.
  • West Hollywood has a brand new Robot Parking Garage. No, it’s not a garage where you should store your piloted mecha. Instead it’s a garage that parks your car for you. Still pretty cool.
  • Rumors about a potential Black Widow solo film continue to fly fast. Anthony Mackie said he thinks the idea is “great,” and that he hopes he’ll get to appear as the Falcon in a cameo, should the movie happen. (via CBR)
  • Hyped for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst? The creators have just released an interactive map of the game world so you can get a peek at some of the places you’ll be able to explore. (via Rock Paper Shotgun)
  • NBC’s new comedy Speechless looks promising. Wanna see the trailer?

What’d you see out there on the internet today? Anything fun?
