Chevy Impala Engine Spontaneously Explodes Into Flame During Oil Change

According to the uploader of the video, this was what happened to his co-worker last week during a routine oil change on a Chevy Impala. The action doesn’t really start until 20 seconds in.

From Tortilla, the original uploader:
Aside from being hilarious, I’m wondering if any of our more mechanically inclined QT3′ers can suggest what might have happened here? The engine is completely shot now and my co-worker is understandably upset about taking his car in for an oil change and having it destroyed. The oil change place is claiming complete innocence and no responsibility. Their story is that the age of the motor (2001 impala) in conjunction with a known defect in GM 3.8L V6’s of that year caused it spontaneously fail despite them doing everything right in terms of the oil change.
