Who can blame him?
The banker caught looking at supermodel Miranda Kerr on his screen at work during a TV interview will be staying in his job.For those who missed it, here's the video. Pay attention around the 1:00 mark.
The unfortunate David Kiely was seen gazing at her picture over the shoulder of a colleague who was taking part in an interview on Channel 7 news at Maquarie Bank in Sydney.
After looking at several images he turned to face the camera and gave a sheepish grin when he realised he had been caught out.
Mr Kiely became an internet sensation but it was feared he would lose his job.
However, after Miss Kerr, an Australian supermodel, lent her support to a 'Save Dave' petition doing the rounds, he has clung on to his job.
Miranda told Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper: 'I am told there is a petition to save his job and of course I would sign it.'
But it seems Miss Kerr's generosity will not be required.
Yesterday the bank said Mr Kiely would keep his job.
'He will remain an employee of Macquarie,' the bank said in an official statement.
'Macquarie and the employee apologise for any offence that may have been caused.'
Mr Kiely, a client investment manager, can thank the banking news website hereisthecity.com, which called on supporters to email the bank demanding that he be let off because he has 'suffered enough' and the 'pictures weren't hardcore'.
One YouTube viewer wrote in support of Mr Kiely: 'To be fair, he was simply browsing through his emails and perhaps he simply opened it not realising what it was.'
Another suggested he was only human, commenting: 'Can't blame him...probably the dullest job ever, plus I mean, come on, it's Miranda Kerr. He's only human.'
