#Everybodyspurts is a hashtag often used with uploads of Vine videos in which the subject stares at the camera with dark liquid coming out of their mouth while listening to the 1992 song “Everybody Hurts” by the rock band R.E.M.
On February 9th, 2013, Vine user Marlo Meekins and her husband Nick Cross uploaded videos in which Meekins turns her head towards the camera while drooling a dark liquid from her mouth with “Everybody Hurts” playing in the background (shown below).
On February 13th, 2013, digital artist Lacey Micallef (a.k.a. LulInternet) tweeted a link to a Vine mimicking Meekins’ video, which has since been removed from Vine. Below is an archived video from vines.s3.amazonaws.com. Right-click the video and press “Play”.
