I guess the bulb is wide enough to keep the refactor on simply sheer will to survive?

Bucket lights like this are usually the symptom of improperly tightened refractor screws. Unlike NEMA heads, these yardblasters have a hole smaller than MV bulbs, so it hangs instead of falling. If it were a NEMA, then it would just fall off into the abyss.

I think this is technically called a strip-tease?

I know of a mercury bucket light that was like this along with another one missing the bulb and refractor completely. It's at a small apartment complex. Last year someone put a new refractor on it and replaced the completely broken one with an HPS yardblaster. I was pretty happy to see that someone actually bothered to fix the mercury bucket light.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I've seen a MV bucket light like this. Still runs. I see these things unused about half of the time. I even saw a house with two unused NEMA heads (missing refractors and bulbs)!
