An Australian man trying to surprise his girlfriend had to call police after getting stuck in his washing machine -- naked.

The man apparently climbed into the top-loading machine at his home in Melbourne on Saturday, telling police he hoped to surprise his girlfriend when she got home.

But then he couldn't get out.

Police, firefighters, paramedics and even a local search and rescue squad arrived to get the man out of his predicament, eventually using olive oil to slide him out, AFP reported.

"It was just a game gone wrong," police Sgt. Michelle De Araugo told the Herald Sun. "It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed."
