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) Josh Millard, “I Knew You Were Tribbles (When You Dropped In)”

Taylor Swift’s current hit has been getting lots of love and hate, but what if she was actually talking about Tribbles instead of a boy, and it just got lost in translation? These furry creatures invaded the USS Enterprise and bred faster than rabbits before the crew transferred them to the Klingons.

2) CineFix, “Iron Man 3 Trailer – Homemade Shot for Shot”

The original trailer to Iron Man 3 has been recreated shot-for-shot without the use of special effects, and while we’re usually impressed with what CGI has to add, we’re equally awed by the DIY version.

3) Magic of Rahat, “Drive Thru Scary Doll Driver”

What’s be even creepier than peering out a drive-thru window to find an empty car? Putting a Chucky doll in its place. Some are aware of the pranksters, others are just as creeped out, and one employee even gets a head shot. But hey, at least it wasn’t clowns.

4) rasmusab, “My cat can see the rotating snake illusion!”

Many of us have come across the “rotating snake illusion” before, but now we have an answer to a question we never thought about asking: yes, your cat can see the illusion too, and it’s entertaining to watch their reaction.

5) goestoeleven, “Breaking Bad – 1995 Style”

We’ve already seen the theme to Breaking Bad in the style of The Wire, but now there’s the added bonus of seeing the iconic scenes play out as your typical cheesy ’90s family show with the theme and some feel-good moments.
