School Starts At 7:00 AM / Me At 6:99 AM







School Starts At 7:00 AM / Me At 6:99 AM is a series of POV videos and phrasal templates depicting people’s reactions when they are late to school. The phrase is most commonly captioned with the purposely wrong time “6:99 A.M,” instead of “7:59 A.M,” and random videos featuring animals sleeping. The meme format was popularized on TikTok in August 2022, inspiring other meme content related to wrong time usage like work, fitness and etc.


The first post available using the wrong time “6:99 AM” format comes from the Brazilian TikToker @claudiofariias dating back to November 3rd, 2021. The video is a comedy in which he uses the overlay texts in Portuguese “school starts at 7 AM” and “me at 6:99 AM.” The video garnered 709,000 plays and 131,300 likes in two years. (seen below)
