It is not a keyboard trick, but rather a keyboard shortcut; a convention used in lieu of using the mouse to click a sequence of menus that results in the same action.
Just like most (if not all) editing applications, when you attempt to exit the program without saving the changes first, you'll be prompted if you want to save the changes. The bottom portion of nano (where you see the lines with control commands -- as prefixed with the caret symbol) in the video already gave you the clue what keyboard sequence to press in order to do an action.
Ergo, pressing ^X (whenever you see sequences like these, it means you press and hold the [Ctrl] aka "Control" button while pressing the letter in the said sequence) will give you the same result as what's shown in the video.
