When I saw this video for the first time, I simply had to see it again and again and again.

Life would be actually perfect if we could rewind to the moments we wish to revisit.
We do have a word for what happens in this video (one word is an obvious one: rewind). Another is regress.

1. To move backward; go back.
2. To revert to an earlier or less advanced state or form.

Do remember: Regress does carry a negative meaning too, that is going back to an inferior or less advanced state from an advanced one.

Usage examples for Regress:
1. May the Sukhna Lake once again regress to its most pleasant state.
2. The Jihadi terrorist movement is a regressive movement taking the world backward rather than forward.
