Chimichangas is a short film. In it, Deadpool and Venom fight over Mexican food.
On the top road, Venom throws a car over the side. He turns and jumps up and down then leaps off the car. He kicks a car across the road.
He leaps over to a blue car teetering on the edge. He picks it up and tosses it aside. He laughs and wiggles his tongue.
Just then he hears the jingling of music behind him. He turns and sees a food truck racing down the road towards him.
He lifts up the side window and pops out wearing a chef's hat. Venom races towards him, his tongue waving out. Deadpool looks shocked.
Venom continues running then leaps up into the air. He tackles Deadpool knocking the window shutter down and tipping the truck over then upside down. A jalapeno flies out.
A dent matching Deadpool's shape appears in the bottom of the truck as it bounces up. Another one appears in the side. A third dent knocks the truck around. Just then, he flies out the back of the truck and slams onto the pavement.
He weakly looks up and reaches to move away. Venom's tentacle appears behind him and grabs him. Deadpool scratches the ground as he is pulled back.
Venom swings him around as he pulls him back towards the truck. Deadpool pulls out a sword and severs the tentacle. He swings the sword around slicing the tentacle five more times.
He lands on the ground with pieces of tentacle landing around him. He stands and readies his sword, the tentacles melt into liquid.
Deadpool reaches behind him and pulls out a chimichanga bursting with fillings. He looks at it realizing what he is holding and is shocked.
He watches as his opponent extends a tentacle to grab the food. He pulls the chimichanga into the truck, the doors closing behind it. Suddenly the whole vehicle shakes as he burps.
After a second, another burp blows the doors off the back. Kitchen utensils, a pan, and peppers fly out along with a big cloud of smoke.
Venom sprints out and runs in circles holding his throat. He stops and burps again, this time flames shoot out. He stops and wipes off his tongue.

Senior vice President of Animation and Family Entertainment Cort Lane said of the series "Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we've ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed, and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them."
Funko Director of Marketing Mark Robben said "We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we’ll be able to create many more."
The setting for the film is based on the opening sequence of the Deadpool film. The freeway signs are from the film.
Animation was done completely in computer imagery by A Large Evil Corporation. The characters are designed to look like Funko's signature vinyl bobblehead dolls.
