It seemed to be more than just coincidence to me, did we really have some sort of a connection for just a moment, or was it just my imagination?

This same sort of thing happened to one of my friends when he was about 15-16. He thought people on live TV were telling him stuff and speaking directly to him. He was utterly convinced no matter how crazy it sounded. I think it's just some part of the hypnotic trance the TV puts you into.
Ideas of Reference:
Definition: Ideas of reference involve the belief that casual events, people's remarks, etc. are referring to oneself when, in fact, they are not. Some sources use the terms "ideas of reference" and "delusions of reference" interchangeably. Other sources differentiate between the two, saying that ideas of reference have less impact on the person's life as a whole. According to these sources, if ideas of reference reach the point of strongly held beliefs or cause impairment of functioning, they become delusions of reference.
