Your headgasket failed you because you can't shoot video in landscape mode.


p.s. Get a sniffer kit. You suck up some fluid from the radiator, mix another fluid with it and it tells if you there's combustion gasses in your coolant.

Or a leakdown test.

Or replace your headgasket, it only takes a few hours, a torque stick and some zip ties.
