Sounds nice and even in the video....

On an oil change the 1500 holds about half quart of oil in rear cover that doesn't drain when you pull the drain plug, that may be the source of the continued milk in the oil. As to the lifters stuck, I've heard of this before, heard a fix was to turn the engine backward some with a wrench from the timing cover access and let it sit a while' then backwards some more.....

The hydraulic lifters probably don't like milky oil.....

Try to see if you can get it to start and idle again, even if badly with choke on, it might straighten itself out after a while of idling. Keep eye on temperature gauge and oil light, and check for more milky oil afterward,

If the oil appears not to be getting milky, I'd still only put maybe a couple hundred miles on it before changing oil again, to get the last of the contaminants out, and maybe a good dose of Seafoam to the oil for the last 50 miles, that will likely help the lifters.
