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) Graham Putnam, “Luke’s Change: an Inside Job”

In a spoof of the 9/11 conspiracy documentary Loose Change, the Galactic Empire is left wondering if the destruction of the Death Star was an inside job. If you think about it, it’s pretty unlikely that one pilot could get past the defensive turrets and make the “impossible shot” of two torpedoes into a two-foot ventilation shaft opening.

2) Roman Atwood, “Little Buzz Prank”

Roman Atwood heads to Panama City Beach during spring break and offers the tourists some “Woody” and “Buzz,” but he’s not talking about weed. He’s just excited about his Woody and Buzz Lightyear action figures.

3) Barely Political, “Walking Dead Homeland!”

Carrie and Brody are on the hunt for Abu Na-Zombie, and their search takes them to the prison held by Rick Grimes and the gang where nobody is sure who is a zombie. Chris Hardwick nerds out halfway through, and in the end Michonne takes charge and takes care of everything.

4) PI BENNETT, “Learning the alphabet with Nicolas Cage”

Having trouble remembering your ABC’s? Nicolas Cage already stole the Declaration of Independence and kidnapped the president, so this should be simple. You just have to put it in the right file.

5) AVbyte, “Doctor Who and The Dalek Companion – The Musical”

The Doctor and the Daleks have been mortal enemies for the past 50 years, but after multiple regenerations, our favorite Time Lord thinks he might have it all wrong and the two races may be able to put that aside and become friends and companions.
