Are Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead or other characters aware that Deadpool is breaking the 4th wall?

I am not sure this is canonical, but there is a 4th Wall Awareness power listed on the Superpowers Wikia.

It states,

Users have the capacity to be aware that their Universe is false. Through this, they may be able to carry out acts that, within the Universe, would otherwise be impossible. Depending on the extent of the user's power, one could potentially gain the powers of Reality Warping and/or Omniscience within the context of their own false Universe.

And we see Deapool breaking the 4th wall in front of Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, at 0:49 in this video:

So if the 4th Wall Awareness super power is canonical, are Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead aware that Deadpool is breaking the 4th wall? Or do they just think he is crazy and talking to himself?

    Either they aren't even concious of it at all (in other words, for them it doesn't happen) or, yes, they think he's crazy. – Paulie_D Aug 25 '16 at 11:01

    In the comic, his 4th wall breaking is generally assumed to be symptomatic of Deadpools mental state. – Valorum Aug 25 '16 at 11:44

    They are aware of it, but don't understand it. Colossus even says "You know I can hear you." on the bridge. – PiousVenom Aug 25 '16 at 19:06

    I’m not clear how your wikia link is particularly relevant. Don’t you just want to know whether Colossus and Negasonic in Deadpool realise he’s breaking the fourth wall? Unless the people who wrote Deadpool slavishly followed that particular wiki page when coming up with the story, I don’t think it’s of any particular help here. – Paul D. Waite Aug 26 '16 at 12:11
