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) Bad Lip Reading, “2012 Debates Highlights”

The anonymous mastermind behind “Bad Lip Reading” is back just in time for Election Day. With the best of the political debates together in one video, we can now see everything we may have missed, whether it’s CBS’s Bob Schieffer craving bacon-filled rolls or the candidates’ childish insults.

2) Jay-Z, “99 Problems But MITT ROMNEY Ain’t One”

President Obama and his two new best friends rallied in Ohio Monday night where Jay-Z performed his big hit “99 Problems” for the crowd of Obama supporters. Only this time he substituted “bitch” for another, more timely word.

3) Animation Domination High Def, “ELECTION ROCK VOTING SONG”

In the style of the old Schoolhouse Rock! educational videos of the 1970s, this homeless Uncle Sam fills you in on how voting really works: The Illuminati’s somehow involved and your vote will eventually get iPads, Kindles and Nooks sent back to the U.S.

4) The Fine Brothers, “Teens/Elders React to Election 2012”

The Fine Brothers took a multigenerational approach to their series for the first time as both teens and elders, many who have already made up their mind, give their candid thoughts about the 2012 election and the issues at hand.

5) College Humor, “321 Fight: Obama Vs. Romney”

Obama and Romney are at it again. Using everything in their arsenal, the two duke it out Streetfighter-style with appearances from Joe Biden, Paul Ryan, Seal Team Six and Romney from 2006. If you K.O., it might cost you more than a quarter to play again.
