It's obvious(not really) that the one who commited the crime is the guy with the mask. He loves his soft clothes so much he doesn't take his mask off. Which gets him caught.

I think the idea is good but maybe the other guys in the line shouldn't have that much of a criminal look to direct the attention to the guy with the mask. Also you can't really tell who the woman is pointing at so that doesn't help either. (maybe use a POV shot instead?)
Other than that, masks aren't really considered clothes I think, most probably because they are not used in everyday life. And that is another element which is making this ad hard to understand.

in short: Good idea, too bad it's not simple enough.

Thanks for the explanation but way too late to get me hooked to the idea. I am still wondering though - about the mask that is.
You are right, this is definitely not a simple ad.
