SYDNEY (AP) — A naked Australian man who became stuck in a washing machine as part of an ill-planned practical joke was freed from the appliance with the help of an unusual rescue device: olive oil.

The man, identified only as “Laurence,” told Australia’s Fairfax Radio that he was on his way to take a shower on Saturday when he decided to climb into the top-loader. He then realized he couldn’t budge and yelled out to his friend for help, who called the police.

Rescuers tried in vain to pull Laurence from the machine, and eventually grabbed a bottle of his favorite olive oil to help lubricate his escape. The oil worked and he popped out.

Laurence says he’s disappointed rescuers used his good olive oil.
