Said man, named Reese, woke up the next day to find a bunch of selfies on his phone, which he promptly shared to Facebook.
"So was just looking through my phone and turns out these good ***** took some banger selfies after they took my drunk ass home!" he wrote, before finishing with "Bloody legends."
Tasmania police then shared the photo to their Facebook page, taking the opportunity to encourage people to organise their night - and a way to get home - before getting too intoxicated.
"On this occasion, police were contacted by a taxi company for assistance in getting the man home. When police arrived, they found out his address, took the man home and waited for a friend to arrive to look after him," the post read.
"Because he was a bit worse for wear, our officers took the opportunity to record the moment with a selfie in the likely event he could not remember how he got home."
The photo, which was picked up by popular site Reddit, has already received over 7,500 likes on the Tasmania Police Facebook page, with comments reading, "Hilarious, bravo" and "Good job team!"
