Jimmy Fallon driving the F-150 Lightning, Bronco Raptor, Shelby Mustang – Detroit Free Press

Comedian Jimmy Fallon stopped by the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn on Friday afternoon to hang out with Ford CEO Jim Farley and factory workers who make the all-electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck, Free Press learned.

The host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” spent nearly an hour touring the new plant with Farley, plant manager Corey Williams and Fallon Gates, an industrial communications specialist directing tours of the site.

“I’m not sure who enjoyed the visit more, the staff at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center or Jimmy Fallon,” said Fallon Gates, who had her hilarious moment introducing herself to the famous visitor. “Everyone was smiling. Jimmy said the tour really blew his mind.”

Ford CEO Jim Farley takes a photo

Jimmy Fallon has been stopping by a few times in Metro Detroit; Ford said this was just one.

Factory workers cheered for the actor who starred in “Saturday Night Live” as did Chris Farley, Jim Farley’s late cousin.

They flocked to take pictures with the TV host, and many of the CEO asked to take pictures with employees’ cellphones as quickly as they could make it happen.

Factory workers shouted, “We love you,” and Fallon shouted at right back.

The TV host, who spent time on his talk show discussing the infamous “frunk,” stopped at the site to meet the workers who installed the huge front box in the pickup.

Fallon tweeted on May 21 a video of himself singing “Junk in my Frunk.”

On Friday, he showed UAW employees photos of an older F-150 and talked about trucks, vans and trucks.

Ford confirmed the information provided to the Free Press about the afternoon’s event.

The light-hearted encounter between Farley and Fallon comes a week after Ford released second-quarter adjusted earnings of $3.7 billion, which beat industry expectations. Lightning plays a key role in Ford’s strategy.
