The bowl looks very light. It is sitting slightly tilted on an unstable surface, probably a folded newspaper, perhaps on top of a pen or pencil. You can see it shift to the right and slide down, then starts to wobble as it moves across the glass top. I think that it was unstable to begin with, and some minor vibration caused it to pivot onto the glass, where it wobbled off to the edge and over. The flash of light could have been the reflection of a large vehicle going by in the street, which could be the source of the vibration that started it all.
It's a more likely scenario than paranormal.
"the bowl is light"
"the bowl is on an unstable surface"
"it's probably on a folder newspaper"
"that probably folder newspaper is probably on a pencil or pen"???
a large vehicle could have passed by causing a vibration leading to the thing falling... ( a vibration which would have to be so powerful as to vibrate through the street, the sidewalk, the building and the counter...c'mon with that vibration stuff)
SOOOO many assumptions there. paranormal things happen everyday. though it's not everyday that they are captured on film. it's alright if you dont believe in ghosts. but, to me all of those things are far more of a stretch.

The store owner says the building is very, very old, and they've had weirdness in other ways...
I'd think a string would be visible when the clerk comes back in to see what happened...
Also, the window was closed. Owner naturally says it was totally genuine, not staged or a clever stunt.
I could think of a few ways to fake it, compressed air off screen for one, It would take little effort to do.
So the question is, does the owner of the building have reason to want free advertising and media coverage...
