TikTokers are sharing the reasons they wish they had a ‘time machine’

TikTokers are trying to turn back the clock in the “I wish I had a time machine” trend. 

The soundbite is sampled from the R&B song “Time Machine” by Muni Long. The single was released in November 2021 and has since become popular on TikTok. There are currently over 42,000 videos made with the “Time Machine” snippet. In this funny meme, people are using it to discuss all the moments they wish they could go back and change things. 

In the popular sound on TikTok, Long sings, “I wish I had a time machine.”

Long has helped to promote the meme herself. Posting, “POV: regretting wearing them heavy a** earrings,” as her song played. 

“When it’s 4 a.m. and I’m still not done with my hair,” @ribkarma said revealing only half her hair was complete

“When I finally get the motivation to clean and get myself together at 3 a.m. but wasted the whole day doing nothing,” @anaykashe wrote in a caption

“When I’m hungry and I remember the slice of pizza I threw out five years ago,” @iyosiasspamaccount said in a video
