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) Final Cut King, “The Cliche RC Action Chase”

The classic car chase scene from just about every action movie you can think of is recreated using remote-controlled cars, a cardboard city, and destruction everywhere they went until an actual car threatens production.

2) The Chuckle Squad, “Zero Dark Catfish”

Maya from Zero Dark Thirty is on a manhunt for Osama bin Laden, but it’s more complicated than it seems. She spent a decade trying to find him, but once she pins him down, it turns out that she just got catfished.

3) GiveMeAMinuteComedy, “Anne Hathaway Sings Theme For Boy Meets World Spin-off”

The Boy Meets World sequel may have its cast, but it still needs a theme song. Luckily, everyone’s favorite go-to singer, Anne Hathaway, still has her Les Miserables look and is ready to riff off the original theme that introduced you to Cory, Topanga, and the gang.

4) Vlogbrothers, “Translating Dance Songs”

With the help of Twitter, Hank Green translates some of the most popular foreign songs to English and performs them to find out the meaning of the songs we can’t help but dance to even if we don’t know what they mean.

5) daneboe, “SLENDER: The Sitcom!”

If you take one of the Internet’s creepiest urban legends and give him his own sitcom, it turns out like most of what’s on TV: A one-note joke overplayed as everyone Slender talks to dies upon seeing him. At least he’ll have peace and quiet in the second episode.
