an RV cruising the streets of New York City is offering something completely different from the latest street food items.
The “Who’s Your Daddy” truck is selling DNA tests, mostly to fathers who suspect their children may not actually be theirs.
“They flag us down, they pull us over, they talk to us,” owner and operator Jared Rosenthal said. “Sometimes because of the nature of the services they want to be a little more discreet about it, but they do come or they’ll call the number.”
Rosenthal said he deals with all kinds of crazy situations all day, every day.
“We have people that want to get the specimen from their spouse without them knowing about it,” Rosenthal said. “We deal with a lot of drama, it’s constant drama.”
There have been instances where men have walked in with a baby to give DNA samples only to find out later they’re not related.
“There’s a lot of difficult situations and tough moments and heartbreak,” Rosenthal said, adding that there are happy endings as well. “There’s a lot of good news that we’re able to deliver and there’s a lot of happy moments.”
For example, the test helped a 44-year-old Harlem man find his long lost 20-year-old daughter.
The cost of the test is between $299 and $575. for more information, click here. cbslocal
