Can this ridiculous 9/11-exploiting ad be real?

(click ad)
Jenburkt is an Indian pharmaceutical company. The redditor who posted the ad says it's pre-9/11. That's doubtful. A couple of commenters called bullshit on the ad being at all real. But a quick digital forensics test indicates that it might be real. And companies and organizations worldwide have not been shy about exploiting the World Trade Center attack in ads. What do you think: real or fake?

REAL, but not done pre 9/11.

A portent of things to come.

Yamasaki, a really interesting and tortured figure essentially capitulated to the box and just cloned it, it was almost like a form of psychic suicide for him.

The hotel chain I was working for at the time of 9/11 had just introduced a new promotion involving airline miles on 9/10. We had plastic mats on the desk which depicted Boeing 757s posed at nearly the same angle as those that crashed into the Towers. Those mats disappeared on 9/12. They were last seen under a litter box I used to own.
