July 28, 2011 | 10:29 am

Wondering just how chaotic the scene got during the near-riot on Wednesday night on Hollywood Boulevard? A video just popped up on YouTube that provides more insight into the melee, which occurred prior to the premiere of the new documentary "Electric Daisy Carnival Experience" when DJ Kaskade invited all of his Twitter followers to an impromptu street party.

When an unexpectedly large percentage of them accepted his invite, they overwhelmed the neighborhood and police came to Hollywood Boulevard.

The video below, shot from the Roosevelt Hotel, shows what happened to one LAPD car.
