The Denver Zoo thought of a clever way to announce the father of a new baby orangutan.
It wasn’t clear to zoo staff who the father of four-month-old Siska was – 30-year-old Berani or 16-year-old Jaya – so they hired Maury Povich to make the announcement!
Fresh off receiving the Daytime Emmys Lifetime Achievement Honor, Maury Povich is here to help us announce the paternity results for Siska, our four-month-old Sumatran orangutan! Is Siska’s father thirty-year-old Berani or 16-year-old Jaya? Watch the video for the big reveal! 🧡 pic.twitter.com/jyh1Mp0Y7C

I’m officially nominating this as the best idea of 2023! What a fun and clever way to not only announce the results, but to engage and attaract attention to your buiness. Well done, Denver Zoo!
The Maury Show ended in 2022 after 31 years of dominating daytime TV and announcing countless paternity tests. He just accepted the Daytime Emmy’s Lifetime Achievement Award last week.
