I think that "the end" is the end of a movie (entertainment) and "the end" of the road/trip (navigation).

i get it but the idea is too forced. from looking at this ad what i think at first is that these people finally found their dream house. the end.

Lovely idea, but like it has been pointed out, so-so execution. Is this even a house that someone who owned a Mercedes would live in?

Yeah, this idea's a bit weak. Tries too hard and the payoff is a disappointment.

Oh c'mon. It's great ad, great campaign. It's obviously not created for festivals and it's simple and clear. Very memorable and witty. Congrats for the team.

neither simple nor clear !! I rly can't get it until now!!!!!! I think maybe he means that this is the END because they have no mercedes in the parking?

This is what I gather from the execution: The "Splitview" (assuming this is a screen inside the car) provides both navigation and entertainment. Hence the rearview camera (navigation while parking) and the old-school "End" title (entertainment).

If so, I stand by my initial opinion—good concept and so-so execution (and I think it may be as simple as changing the background photo).

'Fin' was better. 'The End' has one word too many.
