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) Hunter Sanders, “Game of Thrones – 1995 Style”

The official Game of Thrones title sequence is already impressive on its own, but what if it had aired years earlier? Paired off fittingly with Queen’s “I Want It All” and bad graphics from a VHS recording, this version gives a completely different tone to past events.

2) Paint, “After Ever After – DISNEY Parody”

We’ve seen many of the most famous Disney characters get their happy ending, but what happened after “The End”? It’s not pretty, as Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, and Pocahontas can attest. They have to deal with dead ecosystems, a husband taken by the CIA, accusations of beastiality, and guns, germs, and STDs.

3) HenriLeChatNoir, “‘On Cat Food Boredom’, Part 2 of 4”

Henri the Existential Cat has already observed that cats everywhere are bored to death with their choices in food as they are betrayed by humans. People spoil themselves while cats just want more variety.

4) stuntbear, “St. Patrick’s Day [through Google Glass]”

With the help of Google Glass, one wild St. Patrick’s Day is caught on film as Derrick Hannan starts his day off with a few pints and it quickly escalates to vomiting, public drunkenness, assault, theft, and attempted murder which forces him to clear his calendar.

5) cdza, “Epic Key Changes”

What a difference a key change makes. With the press of a button, any popular song from the last 40 years or so (at least the ones that already have it written in) is instantly made more epic until they reach that final note.
