An English mother accidentally tucked a drunk, costumed stranger into bed early Sunday morning and was later shocked to discover he wasn't her son.

“There’s a naked bloke upstairs, and it is not Stewart,” Cliff Jarvis told his wife Juliet later that morning at their home in Kingsley Common in Surrey, according to The Sun.

Marc Campfield, 29, whose face was painted like a skull, apparently woke up Juliet at about 4:30 a.m. as he stumbled through the house and stripped off his mud-caked clothes. Assuming it was her son Stewart in the dark, Juliet gave him a pillow and directed him into bed.

Campfield couldn't recall how he arrived at the Jarvis' home since he lives four miles away, but apparently he was kicked out of a nightclub for falling asleep. He tried to pretend he knew their son Stewart but was quickly found out when the couple sent a photo to their son. Campfield fessed up, and Cliff gave him a ride home.

“I could not have stumbled into the home of two more lovely people. They were so understanding,” Campfield told The Sun.

The ending was not so rosy for Stewart.

“I’m going to have some serious words with my mother — she still can't recognize me after all these years," Stewart said.
