Bonus: Zonday provides his own harmony.
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) Tay Zonday, “Dragonborn”
Tay Zonday, the rich baritone voice behind “Chocolate Rain” and a “Call Me Maybe” cover he sang as low as possible for fun, covered the theme song for Skyrim, and he even provided his own harmony.
2) Jonathan Mann, “Come Live With Me In Brooklyn”
Jonathan Mann has written and posted a song on YouTube every day since January 2009. Now that he needs a new roommate for his Brooklyn apartment, he naturally turned his Craigslist advertisement into a song for his project.
3) Harry Hanrahan, “Hit By A Bus* – The Supercut”
If you learn nothing else from movies, if you walk backwards into the middle of the street, you’re bound to get hit by some vehicle. The over-exhausted trope is used 93 separate times in just this one supercut. Sean Bean hasn’t even died that many times.
4) Jon and Al Kaplan, “DIE HARD: THE MUSICAL”
If you’ve ever wished that Alan Rickman sang more often in Sweeney Todd, you finally got your wish as Die Hard is turned into a musical and villain Hans Gruber gets his moment in the spotlight with a rendition of “So, Mr. Mystery Guest.”
5) What’s Trending, “Farmer-Ville: Ram Trucks ‘Farmer’ Super Bowl Ad Parody”
On the eighth day, a farmer wasn’t made (as the Ram Super Bowl commercial suggested), but rather it was FarmVille. In order to take on the task of a “Farmer-Ville,” a person needs to be stupid enough to give all their personal information to Facebook but smart enough to find the loopholes, and if anyone can handle that task it’s the Facebook generation.
