A man said he “nearly had a heart attack” when he spotted what he thought was a person staring out at him from his washing machine.

Alex, who tweets under the handle @alxboardman, noticed the creepy-looking face staring at him through the machine window after he put a wash on.

But – luckily – there wasn’t a weird man lurking among his laundry. Infact, it was a pillow, bearing the face of music icon David Bowie – which Alex forgot he had washed.

He shared the story with his followers, who found the whole thing hilarious, with the tweet soon going viral.

He tweeted: “Forgot I’d washed the dog’s blanket and David Bowie cushion. Nearly just had a heart attack.”

Those on Twitter responded with suggestions of who they actually thought the image actually looked like:

Others thank him for sharing the highly amusing story:

There were plenty of Bowie jokes in there too:

Some even shared their own creepy yet humorous encounters:

Something to look out for the next time you do your washing, anyway...
