YouTube Guide: Puppy’s First Christmas

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) Nanalew, “Puppy’s First Christmas”

Nanalew’s family got a puppy for Christmas, and the footage of Sadie on her first Christmas shows two things many pet owners already know They’re hyper (but they’ll pass out soon enough), and gift wrap makes a perfect present for your pet.

2) BBC Comedy, “Extreme Amazing Super-Chess! (Chess.)”

A simple game of chess turns into part sports commentary and part game changer as each player moves his piece and incorporates many other games into the mix until a pee break ends the match.

3) Dan Carollo, “‘Whirled Beat’ 10-year-old boy drumming washing machine”

Think stomp but with a metal laundry twist. One 10-year-old boy takes a washing machine and drums the crap out of it while exploring the different sounds it makes, yet it sounds like something that would fit perfectly in a Stomp show.

4) bd594, “FUN – We Are Young – Old School Computer Remix”

You might think this computer equipment is obsolete, but it actually had a bigger purpose. YouTuber bd594 took a bunch of outdated computer equipment (antique by today’s standards) and played Fun.’s “We Are Young” with it.

5) Evan Duffy, “Deadmau5 – Strobe (Evan Duffy Piano Cover)”

Classical dubstep? You wouldn’t think it would actually work, but composer Evan Duffy manages to juggle the two polar opposite genres after turning Deadmau5’s “Strobe” into a piano cover.
