The Texas woman now known round the internet as “Chewbacca Mom” appeared on James Corden’s show on Monday to help him get to work, as so many celebrities have.

Candace Payne—whose video showing her trying on a Chewbacca mask and laughing infectiously has gone viral since Thursday—shows off the mask to the Late Late Show host. Star Wars Director J.J. Abrams also appears in the video, offering an expert perspective on impersonating Chewbacca. Naturally, all three try on the apparently irresistible masks.

In another clip from the episode, Corden reads Payne a letter from actor Peter Mayhew, who portrayed Chewbacca in the original Star Wars, inviting her to meet him at an upcoming expo.
