It is pretty rare for a car to just blow up and burst into flames with no warning at all.........

Given the number of laptops, ipods etc in circulation and the number that actually blow up it is hardly a common occurrence either. In the case of your video, and the original post they didn't "burst into flames with no warning at all". The Youtube video obviously new something was wrong, and the OP referred to it getting too hot to hold.
