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) Dave Warner, “Extraneous Lyrics 2012”

Some of this year’s top pop songs (and viral hits) are given a wordier twist with the help of a thesaurus thanks to Dave “OkaySamurai” Warner’s annual Extraneous Lyrics mashup. It’s a mouthful, but you’ll be less likely to get it stuck in someone else’s head.

2) Slacktory, “Supercut: Liam Neeson always gets the last word”

Liam Neeson isn’t the most polite conversationalist and always has to get the last word in an argument. Whether he’s adding a witty comment or about to kill you, he’ll always win.

3) Lance Ford, “Wreck It Ralph and Fight Club Movie Trailer Mashup”

The first rule of Fix-It Felix is you don’t talk about Fix-It Felix. Edward Norton’s character from Fight Club game jumps around the city and attends group therapy sessions as he follows the footsteps of Wreck-It Ralph with help from Tyler Durden and Marla Singer.

4) Dr. Cool Sex Comedy, “Super Mario Zombie Brothers”

Armed with a hammer and plunger in first person shooter mode, Mario tries to save Princess Peach, but instead of from Bowser, it’s the zombie apocalypse. And Mario finds out the hard way that he’s essentially alone.

5) Paolo Monti, “Wham Vs PSY – Last Christmas, Gangnam Style”

Last Christmas, Psy did the horse trot for you, but this year he might go somewhere else. Paolo Monti combined a one-hit wonder with one of the biggest hits of the year to create a mashup that clashes more than it flows together.
