Kebab Connection is a 2005 German-Turkish comedy directed by Sinan Akkus and Anno Saul

In this airy comedy, budding filmmaker Ibo (Denis Moschitto) dreams of helming a German kung fu flick but first hones his talent with a commercial for his uncle's kebab stand. Ibo's ad -- a martial arts parody featuring dueling shish kebabs -- becomes a huge hit. But things go downhill when his girlfriend turns up pregnant, his family gives him the boot, he gets embroiled in a restaurant feud and … he attracts unwanted attention from the mob.
