If you mean the very first clip... Then it's really more of a fire than an explosion. And it would be hard to create something looking very realistic with Effectlab's particle engine. Your best bet would be to try to find some stock footage similar to what your looking for.

You can't do that with a particel engine. You'll need proper stock footage.http://www.nccinema.ch/eshop.html
Like the HD explosion pack, which has that firey kinda structure.

But even with stock footage, the explosion isn't going to look like that. By screening the stock footage over your shot, all the dark, smoky bits of the explosion go transparent. Masking it well would probably work pretty decently, though.

Er, no. Animated gifs are a bit too mid-90s and low quality to be used in film post-production, really!
