The following is a paraphrased snippet of something I wrote, it is a conversation between the protagonist--a nihilist teenage boy--and an alien sociologist who communicates to him via telepathy, so the dialogue is private.
Alien: so, you don't want to go to the night club and get laid at all? The world is ending in three days or so, you know.
Boy: not really.
Alien: you don't want to die a virgin, do you? (reference here)
Boy: where did you get all these shoddy cultural references anyways?
Alien: well, I just had to say something that makes me sound like I know a thing or two about human society.
It may be too subtle or too obscure to be noticed, but the last sentence can be interpreted as me--the author--speaking to the reader and acknowledging my ignorance of popular culture.
My question is, is this kind of implicit/ambiguous fourth-wall breaking adding any value to my writing? I would also love to see some examples in existing literature that make use of this feature, if possible.
