With more than 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) Pleated Jeans, "10 Most Common New Year's Resolutions as Illustrated by Cats"
At the beginning of every year we always have our list of resolutions we want to accomplish (but rarely keep), but now that we have visuals of our goals with cats, it might make things easier for 2013.
2) Walk off the Earth, "I Knew You Were Trouble Feat. KRNFX"
The band Walk off the Earth has already had success with their previous covers (including a collaboration with Julia Nunes), and now they're back with an a capella cover of Taylor Swift's insanely popular hit with a little help from Canadian beatbox champion KRNFX.
3) DeStorm, "2012 Rap Up!"
YouTube rapper DeStorm Power tidied up the past year's major events in one "rap-up" video as he tackles everything from celebrity deaths, successes, shakeups and tragedies, pointing out that the Mayans were wrong and through it all "we're still here."
4) NOC, "Every Fan of the NHL"
We're still in the middle of the NHL lockout, and it's even more noticeable with the lack of a Winter Classic, but hockey fans everywhere are still going strong as the NOC portrays each team's stereotypical fan.
5) Julian Tay, "Fireworks In Reverse [NYE 2012 Melbourne]"
We love watching the fireworks displays around the world on New Year's Eve, but once you put the show in reverse it's an entirely different experience, as Julian Tay did with the fireworks display in Melbourne.
