Jimmy Fallon drives F-150 Lightning, Bronco Raptor, Mustang Shelby

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

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host spent nearly an hour touring the new factory with Farley and plant manager Corey Williams and Fallon Gates, a manufacturing communications specialist who guides tours on square.

“I don’t know who enjoyed the visit more, the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center employees or Jimmy Fallon,” said Fallon Gates, who had his own very funny moment introducing himself to the famous visitor. “Everyone was all smiles. Jimmy said the tour really blew him away.”

Jimmy Fallon made a few stops in the Detroit subway; it was just one, Ford said.

Factory workers cheered on the actor, who starred in ‘Saturday Night Live,’ as did Chris Farley, the late cousin of Jim Farley.

They flocked to have their photos taken with the TV host, and many demanded the CEO take photos using employees’ cellphones as fast as they could.
