A man spent the night napping on the roof of a Bondi building before waking up confused
The bizarre moment a man woke up on the roof of a Bondi building has been captured on video.
Thomas Jakubowski was gazing out of his window at 5.30am when he spotted a white shape on the roof.
But what he thought was a discarded beach towel was actually a reveler sleeping off what he would later explain was a killer hangover.
In the strange clip posted to Facebook on Friday morning, the man is still wearing the clothes that he went out in the night before.
Mr Jakubowski zooms in and films the man’s obvious confusion as he stands looking at the corner of the roof for a moment, seemingly bemused and ‘probably wondering how to get down’.

But luckily, Mr Jakubowski was looking out the window of his Bondi apartment at the right time and spotted the rough sleeper in need of some assistance.
‘He woke up and just said that he feels f***ed,’ he told Daily Mail Australia. ‘I just wanted to say hello really.
‘Plus I was impressed that he managed to sleep there all night, so content…I made sure he got down safe and made sure he was on his way home.’
While he didn’t notice the rough sleeper until about 5.30am when he get up to do a weather check, his girlfriend noticed the man had been up there since before 4am.
‘I wished him a good morning at about 6.30am, when I helped him down as I was leaving for work myself,’ Mr Jakubowski added.
‘He must have had a big night or something, and I’m glad the roof was warm enough for him…I walked him out of the block and down to the road just to make sure that he could find his feet and walk straight(ish).’

While sleeping on the roof may not be the best way to wake up after a night on the town, it’s certainly better than driving home while drunk and not waking up at all.
Daily Mail Australia hopes that next time, he is able to find somewhere a little closer to the ground to sleep it off.
Mr Jakubowski also has a parting message for the very creative intoxicated problem solver: ‘I hope the next spot you land is just as comfy – you deserve beach views all night and morning. Well done, lad!
