it would have sail effects propel it horizontally.
It's a solid, compact, and very dense (lead-lined and filled with a human) object. Sail effects are not sufficient to explain its movement.

The fridge, due to aerodynamic effects, would present is smallest surface to the direction of travel, so it would end up horizontal.
That is not how aerodynamic effects work. End-on is unstable. It will actually tend to present its broadest side to the direction force.

Anyone who has tried to handle a canoe in a stiff wind knows this. It takes work to keep a canoe pointed into the wind.
