The mask worn by a woman in a viral video has sold out online. 

A video of Candace Payne trying on the mask for the first time in her car has received more than 130 million views and demand for the mask skyrocketed. 

The mask, priced at $44.99, is out of stock at Kohls, Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us. It’s still available from private sellers on Amazon—but prices start at $225.  

Payne’s enthusiasm was infectious, and inadvertently advertised the mask to millions. 

“Disney better send you a CHECK after those mask sales skyrocket!” wrote a Facebook commenter.
