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) Scott Bradlee, “Thrift Shop (Vintage ‘Grandpa Style’ Remake)”

They might be wearing your grandpa’s clothes, but they might also be dressing for the times. The Postmodern Jukebox Band takes Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” and turns it into a jazz tune your grandparents might have actually danced to.

2) CinemaSins, “Everything Wrong With The Last Airbender In 4 Minutes Or Less”

After multiple requests from viewers, CinemaSins finally tackles The Last Airbender, which is just glaring with sins from the choice in director, the child actors, and even the air karate bonus round. Save yourself the 100 years in an ice ball under the sea, or better yet, watch the TV show instead.

3) Nitro Circus, “Motocross Casino Freestyle”

Waking up, getting ready, and driving your motorcycle through a hotel is all in a day’s work when you’re with Nitro Circus. One biker invades the Eureka Casino and Hotel as he jumps onto card tables, swerves around the slots, and pulls one of his own before leaving.

4) Screen Junkies, “Honest Trailers – The Notebook”

Many will be forced to watch The Notebook with their loved ones this Valentine’s Day, but it’s just the Olive Garden of love stories with its generic plot, Ryan Gosling, and unrealistic expectations for boyfriends everywhere.

5) Fat Awesome Films, “How to Write the Perfect Valentine”

If you’re struggling how to woo your Valentine this year, just take a cue from Fat Awesome. Buy two cheap cards (because who would actually spend more than a dollar on a card?), write the longer message into the shorter card, and throw out the evidence.
