Australia, where pobody's nerfect and men like to surprise their other halves by hiding in washing machines naked. Oh lordy.

Aussie emergency services had to come to the rescue of a 20-year-old man after he got trapped inside a washing machine while playing a game of good old fashioned naked hide-and-seek. As one does.

According to reports, the unnamed man hid in the top-loading washing machine to "surprise his partner" but became stuck and firefighters, paramedics and a search-and-rescue squad had to be called in to help. Search-and-rescue presumably responding to the hide-and-seek element of the problem.

After 20 minutes of attempting to free the man, he was finally released from his tiny prison with the help of a load of olive oil.

According to local police, "it was just a game gone wrong", with Sergeant Michelle De Araugo telling Agence-France Presse, "It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed."
