Video on phone playing on TV

Last night while watching a cable program, during a commercial my wife watched a YouTube video on her cell phone. Miraculously at the same time the same YouTube video played on the TV perfectly synchronized. How was this possible?

If your smart TV is on the same local network as your phone or other device accessing YouTube, then you may be able to cast from your device to your TV as you found.  Not sure if it is a function of the TV Box, the smart TV or the YouTube app looking for compatible display devices on the local network.
