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) nqtv, “Around The World (Rémi Gaillard)”

One shirt design by notorious prankster Rémi Gaillard just went global. The journey started in France, but the shirt’s message, which metaphorically translates to “it’s by doing whatever, that one becomes whoever,” travels to almost every continent as everyone joins in dancing to Daft Punk.

2) The Gregory Brothers, “Obama Sings ‘Let’s Stay Together'”

The Gregory Brothers teamed up with Barack’s Dubs to turn President Obama’s serenade to Michelle into an auto-tuned dub with some backup vocals from Joe Biden and the Gregory Brothers themselves.

3) ESPN, “This Is SportsCenter – Henrik Lundqvist”

ESPN hired a new chef for their cafeteria, and while he’s world-renowned, nobody can understand the Swedish Chef until New York Rangers Goaltender (and fellow Swede) Henrik Lundqvist stops by.

4) pitchforktv, “Shugo Tokumaru – ‘Katachi'”

The latest music video from Japanese pop artist Shugo Tokumaru is made entirely with stop-motion animation of origami and cut-out paper shapes that look like it came straight out of a kaleidoscope.

5) Man VsSubway, “Man vs Subway”

One French commuter hops off the Tube in Paris and manages to run through the city in order to make the train at the following stop, and it’s all caught on camera.
