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) Symphony of Science, “Al Gore – ‘This Earth’ (AKA Algorithms)”

Former Vice President Al Gore wants to solve the climate crisis. While Gore built up his Internet karma with a Reddit AMA, bits of his Climate Reality Project livestream were being auto-tuned into one easy-to-listen-to message by Symphony of Science.

2) Melbourne Metro, “Dumb Ways To Die”

Melbourne’s Metro Trains wants to curb train-related deaths, so the agency has launched an animated PSA that places them in the same category of “dumb ways to die” as taking pills past their expiration date, inviting a psycho killer into your home, and hiding in a dryer.

3) The Movie Miscellany, “100 Most Depressing Movie Death Scenes”

You might want to get out some tissues for this. Not everyone is lucky enough to make it through the movie, and this montage covers some of the most depressing deaths in film history (spoilers ahead). Shockingly, not one of the departing characters is played by Sean Bean.

4) MOVIECLIPS, “Gotham High”

Harley Quinn is your average teenager looking for a prom date and trying to find her place among a band of misfits at Gotham High. The Batman franchise has been transformed into a popcorn high school flick with the help of footage from the actors’ younger days.

5) Screen Junkies, “Honest Trailers – Twilight 3: Eclipse”

If you were planning to catch up with the Twilight Saga before seeing the newest film, but don’t have the time, this honest trailer should do the trick. It’s largely considered to be one of the better Twilight movies, although not much happens, and even the voiceover runs out of things to be honest about.
