Jesus take the wheel. I have officially heard/seen it ALL. A mobile paternity testing truck. Okay y’all here it goes.
A mobile DNA truck named “Who’s Your Daddy” has been cruising the streets of New York City, helping folks sort out their questionable paternity issues.
For a mere $299-$575, Jared Rosenthal tests its customers and either sends their results via mail or makes the special Maury Povich delivery in person with the famous manila envelope.
As most of you know, Maury Povich is the KING of paternity tests and that it can become a bit of an ugly situation especially when there are several fathers in question. As if it isn’t embarrassing enough to not know who your kids belong to, the last thing I would want to do is walk up to a truck parked on the side of the road filling out forms and being swabbed. But hey, to each his own, right? I mean if you gotta know then you gotta know, right? Okkkk!
According to New York Post:
The brown and white vehicle — which charges $299 to $575 — is so eye-catching that some people flag it down like a taxi and ask to be tested.
“I had one woman get six kids DNA tested once,” Rosenthal said.
“Something about the RV makes it more intimate and people open up. It makes it easier for them.
“I get a lot of military requests [to test kids]. I think when they’re away, they want the assurance.”
Within minutes of parking yesterday in East Harlem, a handful of confused or amused onlookers approached the van.
“It’s unusual,” said Omar Rodriguez, who stopped to take a picture in front of the RV with his girlfriend.
Another, Oliver Thayer, observed, “It’s definitely something different.”
“Only in New York,” he said.
Although Rosenthal has been deemed the mobile Maury Povich he says he’s not in business to get rating but to actually help people sort out their paternity issues.
