Star Wars Holiday Special in Van's shoe commercial

My mind has been officially blown. The "new" (yes, it came out on May the 4th, but WHY WASN'T THIS BEAMED DIRECTLY INTO MY BRAIN) Star Wars commercial for Van's Star Wars shoes stars LUMPY. His name is conveniently not said, but if that doesn't look exactly like a teenage version of Chewbacca's son from the infamous Holiday Special I'll eat my hat.

I guess this means that Disney is willing to acknowledge the Star Wars Holiday Special's existence.  Maybe we'll all get a real DVD/BluRay release of it... well, ok, mostly we just want the cartoon.

So is the Holiday Special canon now?
