‘Who’s Your Daddy’ Truck Rolls Through NYC, Offers Answers With DNA Tests



It is a sign of the times — getting a quick DNA test is now as easy as walking up to a truck.

The “Who’s Your Daddy” recreational vehicle 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 Wednesday. “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.”

In this business, 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.

When asked by CBS 2’s Dave Carlin why he was taking the DNA test from the traveling truck, one unidentified man explained, “I’m paying child support anyways and I would do it anyways. You just want to know.”

“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.

Rosenthal maintained that his credentials are legitimate and that his business is legal. In fact, he said he believes he is providing an essential service.

“It’s not something people talk about, but there is a big need for it,” he said.

Inwood resident Kesha Veras agreed.

“The mother is like ‘You’re the father.’ He says ‘No the heck I’m not.’ You don’t know. Right there, that’s how you find out,” Veras said.

As you might imagine, wherever Rosenthal’s truck goes it attracts attention. Reactions range from people saying ‘How could he?’ to others who saying ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’

“Yeah, more power to him,” said Manny Castillo of Elizabeth, N.J.

“It’s a good idea!” added Marlin Martinez of Inwood.

“He’s gonna always have customers, unfortunately,” Dominique Dale said.

Rosenthal said he takes it all in stride.

“Half the job is to be a psychologist to folks,” he said.

The DNA tests, which cost between $299 and $575, require a simple cheek swab from each participant and lab analysis. Results are available in a couple of days.

I saw that on our news. Maury might be out of business!

The people who go on that show think it's a good thing to not know who their baby daddy is. And they have no clue how reproduction works!

If you want to do an entire sports team, go for it, but, in a couple of months, don't expect to be able to pick the guy you want to be the father!

And the kids are going to suffer as we all know! They'll show up on a court show for child support...

Jerry had a rerun on with supposed identical twins early this morning, but, one was happy and had a baby and a boyfriend so the other sister was lonely and jealous and got pregnant by the same guy because she was tired of the other one having everything she wanted.

Their mother came out and smacked the guy a few times!

I have fios (Verizon). I don't know if it's called something different depending where you live.

I had comcast prior to that. Each has their pros and cons. I have everything, except HBO now, but, I've been watching all the HBO Autopsys on youtube and got sidetracked earlier.

Still a great show!

I got an offer for a free movie. I want to watch that one about the infectous disease, or whatever it is. Never played a video game in my life.
