With over 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) Steve Greene, The Dark Knight Rises Leaked Fight”

Want to watch the new Batman but don’t have the time? Comedian Steve Greene’s chopped the blockbuster smash down to 2:32. Shot on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, this leaked fight between Batman and evil genius Bane should give you plenty of insight into what to expect hits theaters next week.

2) Alex Dainis, “17-20-23: A Lip-Sync Six Years in the Making”

Six years ago, Alex Dainis posted a YouTube video that featured her lip syncing to teen heartthrob Aaron Carter’s “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).” She did the same thing three years later and again earlier this year. On Monday, she put all three videos together in a 3:48 clip that should remind folks just how long YouTube has toyed with teenage fascination.

3) Mystery Guitar Man, “Black & White”

Using nine tracks and a clean acoustic guitar in place of Michael Jackson’s impassioned vocals, Mystery Guitar Man offers his take on the King of Pop’s most politically charged track, 1991’s “Black or White.”

4) Bill Plant, “Curby—Part 1”

BBC Comedy tracks one man’s mission to get a beloved backyard game into the Olympics. What’s Curby, exactly? Ask enthusiast Bill Plant: “The object of the game is to throw a ball and have it hit the curb in such a way that the ball bounces back” towards your opponent, requiring that they make a play on the flying ball,” he says. “We got rejected from Sydney in 2000, Athens as well,” Plant explains, but he’s far from giving up. “It’s a wonderful sport. All you need is a ball and a curb.”

5) Unidentified Border Collie, “車の中で犬”

Not much to this one except that this border collie is absolutely hell-bent on biting the side-view mirror off a passing car, and that’s hilarious in both concept and practice.
