Manâ€™s affair with co-worker is revealed after office romp gets live-tweeted
By The Mirror | February 4th 2015
A video of two insurance workers caught in a steamy office romp has gone viral on Facebook.
The lovers, who both work at New Zealand's Marsh insurance firm, based in Christchurch, did not show up for work on Tuesday after their Friday night antics hit the internet over the weekend.
Revelers at a bar across the street first saw the couple kissing, but then it all got a little more x-rated.
As the couple continued to enjoy each other's company, they made the error of leaving the lights on, allowing drinkers to film the scene.
One witness from Carlton Bar and Eatery said that it went on for half an hour, with everyone gathering to enjoy the unexpected romance.
"The entire bar united in cheering them on," said one witness.
"It started with a casual flirt. Then the kiss, grabbing the attention of all.
"Finally they moved to the back of them room, thinking they were unseen.
"Off comes the tights, down goes his head.
"By this stage, 50 bar patrons were pressed up against the window yelling their approval.
"To be honest, after watching them f*** for a good half hour, people started to get bored and drift off back to the dancefloor."
After the pair had finished, the band at the bar played a tongue-in-cheek rendition of the King's of Leon hit 'Sex on Fire'.
It has since emerged that the man in the video is married, and the woman involved is recently engaged.
Workers confirmed that the pair did not show up for work once the video emerged online, and that the woman has since deleted her Facebook account.
Leah Bates, a 25-year-old who was at the bar that evening, told the New Zealand Herald: "We looked out the window and it was all go. Everyone in the whole place was watching.
"They had absolutely no idea - it was brilliant.
"We went upstairs and watched from the balcony, and everyone was cheering, especially when he dropped her on the floor - twice.
"Everyone just lost it.
"They turned and faced the window and everyone was cheering and waving but they obviously couldn't see us. It was pretty funny, a bit of a show for the night.
"Everyone was pretty impressed with how long he lasted. He went for ages."
Marsh chief executive Grant Milne refused to comment on whether or not the pair had been suspended, but said it was being taken 'very seriously'.
