Sometimes you just can't resist the urge to pull a prank on your significant other...and sometimes you just have to be naked to do it. That combo led to a very embarrassing situation for an Australian man who decided to climb into a washing machine in an attempt to scare his girlfriend and got stuck.

According to BBC News on Monday, the incident occurred in Mooroopna, located north of Melbourne in Australia's state of Victoria. The man, who (lucky for him) remains unidentified, became stuck in the machine while in the altogether, prompting a visit from a search-and-rescue squad. Not only that, but firefighters and paramedics also added to the scene.

With the help of some olive oil for lubrication, rescuers greased up and freed the man, who is reportedly in his early twenties, after about 20 minutes of work. He did not emerge with any injuries.

"It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed," Sergeant Michelle De Araugo told Agence-France Presse.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation also spoke about the bizarre incident with First Constable Luke Ingram, who simply said "My advice would be for people not to climb into appliances."

"Obviously that [can] cause a number of issues, as we've seen on the weekend," he added.

Makes one wonder what other kinds of shenanigans people got into with household items over the weekend.
