Mooroopna, Australia - A man who climbed naked into a washing machine to surprise his girlfriend became stuck and needed to be rescued by emergency services, according to the Shepparton News.
Emergency services took 20 minutes to free the naked man. He was prompted to climb into the top-loading washing machine during "a game of hide-and-seek", it said.
The incident happened on Saturday afternoon in the nearby town of Mooroopna. The man, 20, required lubrication to be freed, said Sergeant Matthew Peck of Shepparton Police. However, Sergeant Peck could not confirm reports that olive oil was used.
The incident came as a video of an 11-year-old girl stuck in a similar situation went viral on social media on the weekend.
The girl was also playing hide-and-seek and took cover in a top-loading washing machine.
Other children and an aunt tried smearing the girl in butter and then peanut butter to get her out but eventually called the fire brigade.
