That's pretty well done. The "How It Should Have Ended" ones have had a couple of clever bits, but generally come off sort of heavy-handed and obvious by comparison.

For a true example of breaking the fourth wall, watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off and see how many times Ferris talks directly to the camera.

There are also notable examples in Airplane! and Top Secret!
I can't remember if Top Secret! is in here, but Ferris Bueller and Airplane! make appearances in this collection:

The Top Secret! scene I was remembering is the guy and girl are in a clinch, and the line is "It's like we're in some bad movie." Then they slowly take a nervous look at the camera.

Completely agree. I've seen a bunch of the "how it should have ended" videos, many of which I found amusing. This one--not even a chuckle. But the Conan one is amusing (not riotously funny, but amusing).

True. The 2009 clip made me laugh. The new one, not so much.
