How do you draw a connection between tuxedos and Mickey Mouse? The mouse wears no shirt and red shorts with a couple of white buttons on them. That's not quite a tuxedo....not even remotely close. If anything is jumping the shark though, it's having Valentine's Day themed items. So much for the no real world holidays stance they've been adamant about since Day 1.
I just found the color scheme similar enough, especially the iconic white gloves. Of course, that's only because Mickey was created with a tux in mind, or something like.
The event idea comes from SWG - it was called "Ewok festival of love" there: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Festival_of_Love
