When you see someone yawn you subconsciously think that there isn't enough oxygen in the air (they are gulping for oxygen), so you take a massive breath in order to get your share.

I heard a theory that says yawning derives from social animals, the leader yawns to let the rest of the pack know it is safe to relax and sleep. I dont know if there is any truth in that though.
