The New York Times documents the life of a piano left on the New York City streets. 

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) The New York TImes, “Solo, Piano - N.Y.C. (Op-Docs)"

An old piano is placed in the middle of the sidewalk in New York City, and the New York Times shows the story of the piano from innocent playing and interactions from passersby to its ultimate destruction.

2) Slacktory, “Supercut: There’s no time to explain!”

Movie characters are always running out of time. They have lots of things to tell you, but they’re always lacking the time needed to explain it. Still, Slacktory somehow found the time to slice together a supercut of the most overused of movie phrases.

3) WestJet, “Surprise Christmas Flash Mob”

The airline turned a boarding lounge filled with people waiting for a redeye flight from Calgary to Toronto into the North Pole in a span of minutes as Santa gave the passengers some goodies.

4) Animation Domination High Def, “A Charlie Brown Christmas Reunion”

Charlie Brown returns home from New York to reconnect with the old Peanuts gang and sees that not everything is as he remembers it in a holiday homage to comedian Louis C.K.’s hit show.

5) The Slow Mo Guys, “Flame Throwing”

Gav and Dan step things up a notch from filming flying liquids as they tackle a pyromaniac’s dream. They light things on fire, throw and kick them—while filming at 2,500 frames per second—and the results are stunning to watch.
