Need help concerning the name of a possible Japanese meme

Y helo thar.
Now that I’ve finished my “Y helo thar” entry, I suddenly recalled something that I heard and saw years ago in some japanese flash animations.
From what I remember, it featured 2channel-like drawn men humming and whistling a song, and then yelling at the end of each sentence “RABBIT !”.
I also saw a similar thing with little anime girls disguised as rabbits, standing on a elevator and singing the same way.

The song has been reused in a 2006 Nintendo DS game called “Project Rub” in Europe, also known as “Feel The Magic: XY/XX” (song starting at 00:18):




But I can’t get a hand on the song’s name.
I don’t know if its a popular Japanese song. What I’m sure of is that I clearly remembered seeing this on internet well before the Nintendo DS game.

Can anyone help me with this please ?

I guess the song is called “Rub It”

It seems to be an original for the game.

Oh. That’s from 2004.
I didn’t think it was so old.
So, some 2chan people must’ve reused the song from the game.
No meme here then.
Thanks Captain.
