    "I picked out my truck but now I don't know where to get it, there's a lot of dealerships out there," Fallon said. "So I wanted to come up with a fun way of doing this so we're going to do a contest called 'Fingers on a 4X4'."

    Similar to "Hands on a Hardbody," 10 Ford sales consultants car from around the U.S. placed one hand on a Ford F150 currently sitting on the U.S.S. Intrepid on the Hudson River in New York, and the action was live streamed across the nation.

    Just after noon Wednesday, Porzio, dubbed #FrankfortPete in the competition, became the winner with a time of 38 hours and 52 minutes.

    Fans across the globe joined in the conversation online by tweeting with #FingersOn4x4 and @FallonTonight. Fallon also mentioned that the person who gets tweeted at the most will win a special prize.
