Icon8 HELP!!!! Video included!

So i was sitting at a stop light idoling and the lude started pulsing from 1 grand to 2 grand then back to one grand continuously etc. I got on the freeway and drove for about 12 minutes and i noticed my temp gauge was getting higher. By the time i got to my destination a few miles off the freeway my temp gauge was redlined! I popped the hood and it was smoking really really bad from where i took the video of. That was after it had cooled off a LOT it was way worse before. I really hope i didnt damage the head gasket or anything. Im guessing theres a leak in my coolant line but i dont know a whole lot about engines. Any clue what happened or is this video and that basic info not enough to tell? Any help is appreciated!

thats really hard to tell. but looks kinda like its comin from where the lower rad hose connects to the engine. i hope thats your issue. and i hope that hose is just busted.

you should get it home and put some coolant or prob just water in it and see where its leaking from. maybe jack it up and start it and let it idle.
