"Everybody Wants it All" is a video-chat-style short film directed by Tony Katai starring Mars Argo. It was filmed in October of 2013 and later released to Vimeo on February 19th, 2015. It was finally posted to YouTube on November 8, 2016 as part of the Poppy ARG.

The clip, shortened to a length of three minutes and thirty-six seconds, focuses on Mars, who is talking to an unknown person through a webcam. At one point, she puts a gun to her own head, shortly before coughing up dark blood. The video is edited to appear in low quality, with occasional lag and quality changes. The music that plays during the first ten seconds of the video is theorized to be the scrapped Johnny K remix of "Beauty Is Empty".

The video's length instantly became a symbol for Poppy, with "336" and variations appearing in various places of her work with Titanic. Months after its 2016 release, Mars decided to take the video down from Katai's YouTube channel, along with 2015's "AMANITA", likely in an effort to cut ties with Poppy and Titanic. However, many fans and Tony himself have re-uploaded the two videos since.

[Mars Argo]

Are you there? Hey, can you hear me? There you are. I'm really happy that we get to have these talks. I feel like, I don't really have anyone else to talk to, I mean, my cat, my goldfish. And my goldfish isn't really feeling that well right now, it's all that lady's fault. Well, I was thinking today, when I was looking at the goldfish that, I don't know. I guess I was just thinking about a lot of things. I don't know if any of them really make any sense, I mean, what's the point of all this anyway, right? This is kinda fun! It's funny, right? Playing games. Gum, gun, gum, gun. It's all a big joke, right? Sometimes... sometimes, I just throw up blood. It wasn't your fault, it wasn't anybody's fault, I just wanted it all. Everybody just wants it all, right? Everybody just wants it all.

You cannot be distracted by the illusion you've created. If you want it all, you cannot be distracted by the illusion you've created.
Only when the mind is silent, you can see clear enough to enjoy your life and forget about your desires.
Your desires are irrelevant.
