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) Sesame Street, “Upside Downton Abbey”

The Dowager Countess wants Mr. Carson to get her tea and crumpets, but there’s only one problem: They’re at Upside Downton Abbey, and every time Carson gets her something, it falls down to the ceiling.

2) Vlogbrothers, “Football For Nerds”

Hank looks at why a third of the U.S. watches the Super Bowl each year, and while actual game play accounts for about 11 minutes of the three-hour broadcast, many of the games are close and gives ample time to show us advertisements.

3) Marquese Scott, “Set Fire | Dubstep”

With the help of special effects and some handy rain outside, dubstep dancer Marquese Scott takes his unique dance skills and puts a literal spin on Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain.”

4) Official Comedy, “Super Bowl for Dummies: The Sport Bowl”

Sometimes men just want to watch the game among themselves, and while they love to talk about about football (or any other sport they’re watching), they might not always know what they’re talking about when explaining how the players score home runs in football.

5) Jacob Schwarz, “Ink Drops 4K”

Shot and edited at 4,000 resolution, Jake Schwarz films different-colored inks dropping in slow-motion. It may take longer to load, but watch it in its original resolution and it’s a completely different experience.
