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.

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.
