English translation:I would advise against clique...
Explanation:
.. because that term is not used in the same way as in German.

For this advertisement, use something like "buddies", "buds" or even "possee".


Just some more input ;-)

clique, gang


Explanation:
I suppose they mean 'clique'(no, it's not the new German spelling, I just checked!). I seem to rember the advert, too. Coke or Pepsi or something sickeningly hip and vibrant like that.
