Piercing buddies! Jimmy Fallon took it to the next level on Friday, Nov. 1, when he allowed Harrison Ford to pierce his ear during a pre-taped segment of Late Night. While promoting his latest film Ender's Game, the 71-year-old actor pierced the host's ear as Fallon tried not to freak out during the hilarious segment.

"Because he's one of the coolest people in history and I want to be like him, I've asked Harrison Ford to pierce my ear," Fallon, 39, told the audience. "I've never had my ear pierced. I'm very scared for this." (Ford famously got his ear pierced back in 1997, when he was 55.)

During the clip, Ford promised that the new stud in his ear wouldn't hurt. "It's not going to hurt -- me," he joked, as Fallon responded: "I can't believe this. I'm already freaking out."

The new dad sat down in anticipation for the new look, as he asked: "What's the worst thing that could happen? Could I get an infection?" Ford quickly quipped: "Nah. You could bleed to death."

The Expendables 3 actor spit his hands to get ready, and even passed up the opportunity to ice Fallon's left ear to ease the pain. "We have a gun and a needle, which one would you use?" Fallon asked. "I'd say the gun. It's pink and looks like a lot more fun," Ford said.

The Saturday Night Live alum admitted he didn't even give his wife Nancy Juvonen a heads up about the piercing. "She's going to be so mad," he joked. "I'm going to call her right after the show and tell her what's going on."

And as for the new bling on his ear? No stud for him! Instead, the Late Night host got stuck with a long, jeweled red feather. After the pre-taping, he even teased his fans via Instagram with a photo of the finished look. "Harrison Ford pierced my ear on our show tonight. #ThereWillBeBlood," he wrote.
