With more than 72 hours of footage uploaded every minute, it’s physically impossible to keep track of the content on YouTube. In YouTube Guide, the Daily Dot will curate its five favorite finds for each workday.

1) pixelspersecond, “The Matrix Retold by Mom”

Joe Nicolosi watched The Matrix with his mom, and right after they finished he asked her to describe what they had just watched to him. He reanimated the story with her descriptions, which may be even more entertaining than the original movie.

2) SinclairEoin, “Harder Better Faster Stronger – Note for note, on piano”

After studying Daft Punk’s “Harder Better Faster Stronger,” one musician shows that you don’t need a synthesizer to create a note-for-note rendition of the song on the piano.

3) MediocreFilms, “Nursing Home Prank Call”

Greg Benson and Plymouth J. Cliffords want to rent an elderly person, so what better place to go to than a nursing home full of them? The nursing home doesn’t rent out their residents, but they let the call go on longer than you’d think.

4) National Post, “Catch up for Iron Man 3 in 3 minutes”

Iron Man 3 is about to open in U.S. theaters everywhere, but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen Tony Stark on-screen. If you don’t have the time to rewatch the first two movies and The Avengers, this animated recap should do the trick.

5) pyrobooby, “Dove Real Beauty Sketches – Asian Men”

A trained “Draw My Life” artist is brought in to perform a social experiment in which he draws Peter Chao based on his own description and on others’ descriptions. Not only do the sketches look nothing alike, one of them is full of Asian stereotypes.
