Video grab of Channel Seven's camera catching a Macquarie Bank operative getting distracted from his work.

An Australian Macquarie Bank worker is captured on live television watching half-naked model's photographs during work.

The unknown banker with his back to the newsreader in the studio, was admiring racy pictures of Australian model Miranda Kerr while a colleague made live cross to the Channel Seven newsroom, according to media reports Wednesday. Unfortunately, he had no idea that his computer screen was highly visible to the television audience.

He didn't stop staring at the pictures even when another colleague came to talk with him. And all of this had been seen by the television audience clearly. When he finally found out the camera as the corss live was over, he smiled embarrassed.

Both Macquarie and the Seven network issued tersely-worded statements in response.

"On behalf of our viewers, we have expressed our concern to Macquarie," a Seven spokesman said.

"They have assured us they are taking the appropriate action."

A Macquarie spokeswoman said the bank "takes matters such as the unacceptable use of technology extremely seriously" and that the matter "is being dealt with internally".
