YouTube Guide: “Epic Rap Battle of Manliness”


YouTube duo Rhett and Link go mano-a-mano in a rap battle for the title of “manliest man.”  Plus: The best dad ever builds his kids an amazing Wipeout course.

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) Rhett and Link, “Epic Rap Battle of Manliness”

Comedians Rhett and Link have been friends forever, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a mean streak—especially when it comes to the issue of manhood. Both troupe members have to play alpha dog. Which explains why the two were forced into rap a battle or the title of manliest man.

2) Colin Britt, “Call Me Maybe”

The “Call Me Maybe” summer rolls on into fall, this time as an orchestral number arranged and transcribed by Colin Britt and Arianne Abela and performed by the 3Penny Chorus and Orchestra in New Haven. To be honest, I like this version more than Carly Rae’s.

3) Mike Conley, “Dad Builds Wipeout Kids Course On Street”

The first time Dad of the Year Mike Conley made a Wipeout course in his backyard, he put the results on YouTube and it went gangbusters to the tune of 10 million views. He’s now back with Season 2, and this year’s model looks bigger, badder, and better than ever.

4) Roman Atwood, “Farting in the Hood Prank”

Without a doubt, the most effective way to make enemies with strangers is by sitting down next to them and letting out a big, juicy fart. That’s the conclusion arrived at by merry pranksters Roman Atwood and Dennis Roady, who teamed up with Jack Vale and his handheld fart machine to break wind in a strange and unfriendly place.  

5) Mike Falzone, “Fun Ways to Talk to Liars”

What’s the best way to out a liar in conversation? Just tune in to YouTube comedian Mike Falzone, who recommends first and foremost that you give your liar a really excited smile.
