People seem to like Prime Minister John Key's laid back public persona, but his smile-and-wave approach has seen him compared to the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il in a recent internet parody.

A Facebook page entitled John Key looks at things has sprung up.

It contains a number of pictures of Key, well, looking at things.

They include boobs, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, penguins and broccoli.

The page says "Our Dear Leader like to look at things and now you can look at him looking at things too".

"John Key looks at things like Kim Jong-Il looks at things but slightly more democratic and with more sheep."

One picture shows Key during an election campaign visit to Gisborne late last year, he is looking at a lettuce.

Another shows Key talking to three shirtless men, the caption reads "John Key looks at handsome young gay men".

Members of the public have commented on the photos, one suggesting a picture of Key looking at "privileged white girls" is him addressing "future electors".

And it seems no political leader is safe on the site.

A picture of Key with Gillard is entitled "John Key looks at some ginger lady".

The site, which began life on photo-sharing site Tumblr, has more than 300 Facebook 'likes'.
