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) AVbyte, “Star Wars Disney Villains”

Darth Vader is now a Disney villain, and initially he doesn’t like it at all, but after talking to Loki of Asgard—a recent Disney transfer himself—Vader realizes it won’t be all that bad and things will get better.

2) Zach Prewitt, “(S)he’s Right Behind Me, Isn’t (S)he?”

Movie and TV characters aren’t the best at talking trash without being overheard as this supercut shows clips from almost two dozen films and TV shows where that person is looming right behind them—or in one case, right in front of them.

3) Brian and Maria, “Why Doesn’t MTV Play Music Videos Anymore?”

4) SMBC Theater, “The Nerd Girl”

5) MinutePhysics, “Open Letter to the President: Physics Education”
