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) Freddie Wong, “First Person Mario: Endgame”

It’s been almost two years since Freddie Wong last made a first-person Mario video, but he’s back to jumping on cannons, killing bad guys, and finally defeating Bowser in order to save the Princess in the very last level of Super Mario 3.

2) Ijameswalters, “Gollum sings I Dreamed A Dream”

Andy Serkis never got an Oscar nomination for his work for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but Gollum is still determined as he croaks out a precious rendition of the song that’s likely to get Anne Hathaway her first Oscar.

3) Official Comedy, “Teen Wolf in the Bathroom”

Scott from Teen Wolf has something that he’s trying to hide from his father once the full moon rises, but it’s not what his father thinks. His dad might be a werewolf, but he’s more concerned and impressed with what Scott’s hiding (and where).

4) Josh Sundquist, “The Oscars for Math Nerds”

Motivational speaker Josh Sundquist breaks down all of the Oscar-nominated films for Best Picture, and he manages to find something graphable in each, such as the body count in Quentin Tarantino films, the odd facial hair in Lincoln, and the number of emo characters Jennifer Lawrence portrays.

5) Ze Frank, “Take The Human Test (Volume. 1.1.1)”

If you’ve ever doubted whether you were human, there’s now a simple test you can take full of mundane life questions. You’re human if you answered “yes” to five or more questions, but if you didn’t, there will be more tests to determine if you’re actually a robot instead.
