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) AwesomenessTV, “Cereal Killers”

A psychotic health nut is on the loose—and he’s bent on global cereal domination. General Mills recruits Crunch, the world’s most decorated captain, who in turn enlists one lucky leprechaun and a Rabbit to take down the Quaker.

2) Ze Frank, “True Facts About Baby Echidnas”

The Echidna is a strange creature with a hard-to-pronounce name who was created shortly after God made marijuana. At least, that’s what Ze Frank is claiming in his latest “True Facts” video, which features a list of facts that are anything but.

3) Shane Dawson, “Maybe This Christmas”

First it was Alex Day, and now Shane Dawson is the latest YouTuber to release a Christmas music video. In “Maybe This Christmas,” he watches his girlfriend from beyond the grave and wants to be able to dance with her one last time.

4) PandoDaily, “The Ballad of John McAfee”

John McAfee had a few busy weeks on the run (and much mystery surrounding him) before he was arrested in Guatemala, and as the movie rights to his story were sold to Impact Future Media, PandoDaily paints McAfee’s tale with the rumors and facts at hand.

5) ERB, “Moses vs Santa Claus”

Santa may bring presents to children all over the world, but ERB managed to recruit rapper Snoop Dogg to play Moses, and even with the standard marijuana jokes, he beats Santa to the ground with his staff.
