Hollywood Riot Planking«»Up 2Down 0OK, in a nutshell...
On July 27th, 2011, a premiere was held in Hollywood for a film called "Electric Daily Carnival Experience." It's a documentary about the annual electronic music festival "The Electric Daisy Carnival." As part of the premiere event, a DJ named Kaskade had planned to do a little of what the kids call "spinning," and then there was going to be an invitation-only afterparty at a nearby club, Supperclub, on Hollywood Blvd.
Kaskade, though, decided to take to what the kids call "The Twitter" and inform the world that he was hosting a 'block party' at Hollywood and Highland, one of the busiest intersections in Los Angeles. And then a lot of people showed up. A lot. Probably too many. And the police responded, in riot gear, and things sort of spiraled out of control, culminating in some vandalism and general civil disobedience.
And what better way to celebrate a riot breaking out during a set by a guy named "Kaskade" than a little old-school LAPD planking? Seriously, in one single generation, American riots went from the Civil Rights Movement to lying down on Hollywood Blvd. in front of cops shooting bean bags because you wanted to hang out and hear a DJ play a bit longer.
