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) Steve Berke, “Pot Shop”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Thrift Shop” is currently burning up the Billboard charts, which means it’s time to roll in the parody clips. Introducing “Pot Shop,” the newest ode to marijuana from the Miami-based comedian Steve Berke. Bonus points to Berke for the Sexy Sax Man cameo.

2) Zach Anner, “Riding Shotgun: Southern Hospitality”

Zach Anner and the boys make their way through the charming town of Savannah, Ga., where they meet up with an art student named Brandyn and learn about the true meaning of good old southern comfort food.

3) Rick Glassman, “Audition Tape for Industry and Hollywood”

Comedian Rick Glassman has been a member of the SAG and AFTRA since before the two guilds even merged. But he’s still having trouble finding legitimate work. Kind of hard to believe, right?

4) Jabari Johnson, “Issa Rae, The Awkward Black Girl”

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about YouTube’s provocative Awkward Black Girl boiled down into a 14-minute mini-documentary.

5) Toby Turner, “New Years Rap (A Couple Guys in Hawaii)”

What did you do to ring in the New Year? Toby Turner and his buddy Jacob were cruising the mean streets of Hawaii, wearing visors and sipping on pink drinks. Sound tough? Wait until you hear the two rap about it.
