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) Dartanion London, “Fabio Teaches You How to be Fabio”

The end of a four-year journey to meet Fabio is nearly at an end for Dartanion. When his first attempt to meet his idol fails, he finally gets Fabio one-on-one, and learns the punful tricks of the trade of how to be Fabio.

2) UCBComedy, “Facebook Focus Group: Where Facebook Gets Its Ideas”

If you’ve ever wondered just why Facebook made those changes you never asked for, it wasn’t because of a failed vote to keep the power with the people, but rather a poorly-picked focus group where everyone loves more ads, the “invite-all” option, and having their personal information sold.

3) Internet Explorer, “Child of the 90s”

The Internet browser that comes with every PC is gearing towards Generation Y and BuzzFeed readers with its latest ad, while reminiscing about the simplicities of life that came with the ’90s (even though its target audience is likely watching in another browser).

4) Lindsey Stirling and The Piano Guys, “Mission Impossible”

Lindsey Stirling teams up with the Piano Guys as she and cellist Steven Sharp Nelson try to sneak up on Jon Schmidt (as an eye-patched, piano-wielding villain). And because it’s a nod to the movie/TV franchise, of course someone gets lowered on a wire to make the grab.

5) The ShoKo Show, “8 signs your cat is actually a dog”

We’re unable to verify whether or not your cat is actually plotting to kill you, but it might be easier to determine if you have a pooch in a kitten’s body. Be sure to check out for panting, an ability to fetch and a love for going out on walks.
