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) Gisela Valentin, “Philadelphia Police Brutality”

At this weekend’s Puerto Rican Day parade in Philadelphia, Gisela Valentin captured a police officer hitting a woman in the face after he’d been sprayed with water. Valentin’s footage confirms that the woman played no part in the scheme.

2) Slacktory, “Every on-screen drink in Mad Men”

Mad Men: the show about advertising that’s somehow more about drink taking than it is about ad making. The show has seen more sips from a cocktail in its five seasons than most bars do in a lifetime, and that’s a feat worthy of documentation.

3) Android Authority, “iPhone 5 Torture Test”

Just how durable is the iPhone 5. Time to ask the guys at Android Authority, who lay out a pretty simple plan: “First, we’re going to drop some coffee on it. Second, we’re going to scratch it with some keys. Finally, we’re going to submerge it in water for 15 seconds.”

4) AVByte, “Hipster Disney Princess—The Musical”

In the world of hipster Disney princesses, the cure for thinking the world’s too mainstream involves sipping on some Kombucha. Have Ariel, Belle, Snow White, and Cinderella tell you how it goes, with original music from AVByte’s Antonius Nazareth.

5) Pony Ride, “Tom Hardy Fever”

One unlucky woman has seen Inception and Lawless, and last night she watched The Dark Knight Rises for the third time! The result: a severe case of the ever-contagious and über-dangerous Tom Hardy Fever, a condition that will make even the most pleasant women start to sound like Tom Hardy.
