An Australian man wanted to surprise his girlfriend when she came home so he got naked and went into the washing machine.

Cops had to grease up a naked man with olive oil after he got stuck inside a washing machine during a risky game of hide-and-seek.

The adventurous Australian, named only as Laurence, thought he’d found the perfect place…when he clambered into the top-loader machine Saturday, according to ABC News.

But when his girlfriend returned to their Melbourne pad, he realized he was wedged firmly inside.

Firefighters, paramedics, police officers and a local search and rescue squad all descended on the property.
