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) Gritty Reboots, “Goodnight Moon: The Movie (Trailer)”

A beloved children’s literary classic is turned into a creepy horror film as one person finds himself in a mysterious room (with plenty of details from the book) with a hushing girl as his only companion.


2) Slacktory, “All the Cougar Town title card jokes”

The creators of Cougar Town have tried (and failed) to change the name of their show over the years, so they settled for the next best thing. In almost every title card they’ve managed to poke fun of the show name they love to hate.

3) Moving Mind Studio, “Awkward Handshake: The Game”

The most awkward part of meeting someone has now been turned into a first-person video game. Your character will have to interact with coworkers, old friends, strangers, and female friends

4) guyismdotcom, “Game of Thrones’ King of One-Liners: A Tribute to Tyrion”

Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones is a fan favorite, and it’s easy to see why. He’s got the best lines, and Guyism put his best zingers into one burn o a video.

5) AsapSCIENCE, “Why Do We Cry?”

It’s normal for our eyes to water up when they’re irritated or to stay moist, but it’s a solely human reaction to cry when we’re sad. It’s a way for us to let others know how we’re feeling, and according to one theory it’s a way to let out stress.
