Is my TV or ROKU device listening to me?

ok, so this is weird. 

Husband and I watched a movie on our vcr last night. movie ended. opend YouTube and the first post after an advertisement was a scene from THAT MOVIE! 

Husband says this has happened up to 4 times in the past week or so. 

We watch something on the vcr/dvd player and then youtube has stories on that very movie, or movies/tv shows that have the same actor! EX: we watched a movie with Charles Haid as a character, we spoke about Hill Street Blues, and then YouTube had stories about Hill Street Blues! 

Husband thinks our ROKU device has a microphone. 

Any ideas? TV is not a roku tv. TV about 10 years old, maybe more.
