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) Coyle98, “The Simpsons Opening—Real-life Style”

YouTuber Coyle98 took an overweight dad, overwrought mom, underachieving son, under-appreciated daughter, and pacifier-sucking baby, and reconstructed the classic opening sequence from “The Simpsons.”

2) Pony Ride, “Fantasy League”

The three gals in Pony Ride get together for the first all-girl fantasy football draft—and surprise, surprise, they’re only picking quarterbacks and cute guys. Jon Hamm in the second round?! He’s not even a football player!

3) Johanne Stetka, “AJ and MJ 22 month old twins fall asleep while eating”

Little guys AJ and MJ cannot seem to keep their eyes open and transfixed on the plates of spaghetti that sit before them. Their mouths, however, still want oodles of noodles. Which means we get to watch these babies do some seriously funny sleep eating.

4) MrHammn, “Tumblr: The Movie Trailer”

What would Tumblr be like if Tumblr was a movie? How would you promoted it? Who would star? And would the script just be one really long “asdfasdfjklhalkdsjfhlkh OMG. I CAN’T!”? We’ve got questions. YouTuber MrHammn has answers.

5) UCB Comedy, “Jim Lehrer: Badass Moderator”

Think that moderator Jim Lehrer had trouble keeping form at last week’s Presidential debate? Think again. According to the Upright Citizen’s Brigade troupe The Punch, Lehrer “moderated the sh*t out of that Presidential debate.”
