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) pleatedjeans, “Misheard Song Lyrics Round 2”

It’s 2013 and we’re still singing along to all the wrong words on the radio. Pleated Jeans rounded up 20 popular songs from different genres and finally gave us the lyrics we thought were right all along.

2) The Fine Brothers, “YouTubers React to Rickroll”

It started off with the sound of soothing waves, but soon the Fine Brothers used the power that their show commands and Rickroll’d all of the YouTuber reactors. They snag them again, and their frustration transcends into the extras.

3) HenriLeChatNoir “‘On Cat Boredom,’ Part 1 of 4”

Friskies has commissioned Henri the Existential Cat to do perform a study on cat food boredom. In his experience, human error is usually the place to start, so he sits on his counter and observes the daily hope and inevitable disappointment of the cats around him.

4) swoozie06, “Diary of a TV Addict”

People take their entertainment very seriously.  Swoozie explains that if he doesn’t walk his dog, gets a bad test grade, or ignoring your texts, blame TV. He just wishes that TV networks would give audiences closure before cancelling shows.

5) CinemaSins, “Everything Wrong With Skyfall In 4 Minutes Or Less”

In Skyfall, there’s too many blatant product placements. M is the worst, and Silva leaves too much of his ultimate plan to chance as he gets caught only to escape his cell at the right moment, but these guys argue that with the “think on your sins” message, Skyfall just wanted its sins to be tallied.
