An RV called "Who's Your Daddy" is driving around the streets of New York offering DNA paternity tests.

The "Who's Your Daddy" RV is looking to make DNA paternity tests a bit more of an impulse purchase. The colorfully-wrapped vehicle attracts fathers who aren't certain that the child in their hands is their own, and after a $299 to $575 purchase, a quick cheek swab, and a three-day waiting period, they can get the answer. According to The New York Post, the truck is owned and operated by a Jared Rosenthal, who drives around the five boroughs looking for customers. The testing itself is run through Health Street, which offers an array of services, including the "Most Popular" $350 paternity test, the results of which are valid for use in court. As you would imagine, it can all be a bit dramatic. As Rosenthal told The New York Post: "It’s just drama, a lot of drama. You see a man come in with a baby. You see them together and you just hope that he’s the father."
