TikTok trend forces users to confront the cringiest moments of their past

TikTok’s latest sensation is a viral sound that has users confronting the embarrassing moments they can’t get out of their heads.

“Waking up in the morning thinking about so many things … I just wish that things would get better,” the viral sound says in an equally cringey and out-of-tune voice.

Where did the sound come from?

The sound comes from a clip from Real Housewives of New Jersey which features Teresa Giudice’s young daughter Gia singing an original song.

TikTok user @amiryassoficial shared the app’s first upload of the clip on Jan. 10.

So far, more than 77,000 videos have been created with the sound.

Here are a few of our favorite videos from the trend.

A vast majority of the videos had TikTok users expressing their regrets over emotional middle school photoshoots.

In fact, at least five of the most-liked videos that use the sound involve melodramatic photography.

A photoshoot gone awry for user @heyyourprettyugly turned out more iconic than upsetting, though she called it a “tragic experience.”

“Thinking about when me and my family took green screen photos and I wore a green sweater,” she wrote before showing off the torso-less pictures.

“You’re a living legend,” one commenter wrote.

User @cassidymartens used the sound to lament her tough job as a Starbucks barista.

“Me constantly making Frappuccinos for rude 13-year-old girls for barely $10 an hour,” she wrote in the video.
