Question Light fixture rotates but doesn't come off!

I've got an overhead light fixture in my bathroom and the light bulb needs to be replaced. The glass fixture rotates freely but won't come off. It's clearly not threaded, as I rotated it freely a good ten revolutions in each direction and it neither tightens up or loosens to the point it will come off. The video at suggests I need to rotate it to a certain position and it will come right off, but it doesn't come off in any position.

Has anyone encountered such an issue? If so, what is the trick to get the fixture off?

It's likely spring loaded. Grasp it with both hands and pull down on it.
