Can anyone identify the acorn lantern that fell on top of the Toyota Sienna featured in this video?:

https://youtu.be/BzZitICHXc4

It looks like it runs high pressure sodium lamps based on a partially visible barium getter seen through the acorn diffuser. When looking at the thumbnail of this video, it made me laugh as I thought that it was strange seeing a street lantern in a place where it should not be.

I wonder how this lantern landed upright when it fell.

 I'd guess it was loose to begin with and since the ballast is on the bottom , the fixture landed upright or nearly so when it went thru the window due to it being bottom heavy .

The Acorn is at the top of the pole and the pole is right. How it can fall and land such on the car?

That car was likely moved after the fact.  I've worked on a few of these acorn fixtures, and they can be top heavy if it disconnects where the ballast is connected (right below the plastic acorn) it will fall straight down.
