With over 72 hours of footage uploaded every minute, it’s physically impossible to keep track of the content on YouTube. But in YouTube Guide, the Daily Dot will curate its five favorite finds for each workday.
1) Dude Perfect, "Olympic Trick Shots"
The London Olympics are just a week away, and the trick shot masters at Dude Perfect are celebrating by reeling in some of their favorite American olympians for a cross-fit exhibition in putting the ball into the hole. We're talking fencers like Dennis Bowsher and cyclists like Giddeon Massie showing their best hoop trick shots off for all the world to see.
2) Vlogbrothers, "The Universe is Weird: A Song"
Take it from Hank Green: The Universe is a strange place. And if you don't want to take him at his word, at least take him for his song. Strumming on an acoustic guitar, the taller Vlogbrother explains what's going on with quarks and photons and electrons and all that weird science stuff.
3) Nick McKaig, "The Indiana Jones Theme (Vocal Cover)"
Tallahassee, Fla., vocal phenom Nick McKaig pulls a nine-part a cappella twist on the classic John Williams theme song to Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones trilogy—complete with backdrops and Indiana Jones hats and everything.
4) Mystery Guitar Man, "Mini Larry King"
Mystery Guitar Man is back, and he's brought along… Larry King?! That's right, the legendary CNN talk host—currently pushing a Web show on ora.tv—stopped into MGM's living room to have some fun with some miniature versions of himself. It's silly, it's fun, it's Larry F'n King.
5) All Time 10s, "10 Surprising Facts about Google"
