The product in the video is the Sky Cutter .40 V2 model “airplane” (Have linkiez). The one specifically in the video is the Green Cover version, which costs 40 dollars more (or 50 if you buy the original and the green kit seperately).

The pages for the products say they went up on April 4th, 2005, but that is not when it was first put up for sale. Videos for the product (the Cotton Eye Joe version you have there is certainly the most popular, and a big addition to what made it big) were being uploaded already as early as late 2004.

Restricting Google searches to 2004 pops up plenty of topic specific threads about people being curious on how it flies, so starting there should give you plenty of leads.

How it suddenly got famous on Tumblr though, that I am (yet) unaware of.

And yes, this thing totally deserves an entry VanManner, thank you for bringing it up.

Not only do we have the original video, we also have the Jimmies fad using that video clip for one variation of the fad (“there is no need to be upset”). After a good writeup and at least one front paging, it will get confirmed pretty quickly.
