From Epic Meal Time to the 12 Dunks of Christmas, everything else you need to watch on YouTube this Dec. 25.

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) Epic Meal Time, “Epic Christmas Carol”

The Sauce Boss is being a right old Scrooge this year as he is visited by the Ghosts of Bacon, Booze, and Bitches in between making a candy-and-meat snowman in order to teach him a lesson.

2) gloveandboots, “Carol of the Mehs”

A bunch of puppet gorillas put their own twist to a Christmas carol favorite, and while there might not be actual lyrics, they pull off the harmony quite nicely. They even fit in a drunk solo.

3) Airman Magazine Online, “Christmas Drop”

Considered to be “the mission that everyone wants to go on,” the U.S. Air Force completes its annual Operation Christmas Drop and delivers donated goods and bundles to Micronesia to more than 30,000 islanders, a tradition that has spanned over 60 years.

4) NOC, “The 12 Dunks of Christmas”

Watching basketball is part of the Christmas tradition, so NOC took the classic “12 Days of Christmas” and turned it into an homage for the different types of dunks, which are still impressive throughout the countdown.

5) TomSka, “Christmas Demolition”

Still haunted by his Christmas past, one action star fights his way past elvish assassins on a TV set in order to finally face the one man behind it all, but Santa won’t just take it lying down.
