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) Chris R. Wilson, “‘Do You Love Me’, a film by Cleverbot”

Cleverbot is one of the world’s most advanced artificial intelligence programs, so Chris R. Wilson collaborates with the program to work on a movie script, but it doesn’t exactly go according to plan.

2) Republic of Korea Air Force, “Les Miserables Parody”

The Republic of Korea Air Force translated and changed the plot of Les Misérables so that the prisoners are really soldiers who spend their days shoveling snow and Jean Valjean has to fight against all odds to save his relationship.

3) Ze Frank, “True Facts About The Land Snail”

If we looked like a disembodied tongue, were covered in mucus, and had a shell, we would be similar to land snails. The narrator struggles to keep a level tone as he describes the sexual habits of land snails, which include shooting love darts near the other’s head.

4) MichaelAlvaradoMusic, “TV Show Medley: Part II – Us”

Michael and Carissa Rae Alvarado are reliving their childhood one television theme song at a time with a medley that includes many of the shows we wish the networks we love to hate on would bring back to air.

5) KMPHFox26, “Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker’s Original Song”

Kai, everyone’s favorite hatchet-wielding hitchhiker, may have been songified by the Gregory Brothers, but it turns out that he has some musical talents of his own. He visits a guitar store with KMPH reporter Jessob Reisbeck and plays an original tune.
