It is one of the longest running of its kind and the spot has seen very few changes since the time it was first aired.
Also known as frozen time, the big freeze, dead time, flow motion, or time slice X is a special and visual effect that refers to a digitally enhanced simulation of variable-speed (i.e. slow motion, time-lapse, etc.) photography used in films, broadcast advertisements, and video games. It is characterized both by its extreme transformation of time (slow enough to show normally imperceptible and unfilmable events) and space (by way of the ability of the camera angle—the audiences point-of-view—to move around the scene at a normal speed while events are slowed). This is almost impossible with conventional slow-motion, as the physical camera would have to move impossibly fast. Gimme X and where did we first come across X.

Who‘s Y? X is known in English as "Heroic Fighter" is an iconic photo of Y wearing his black beret taken by Alberto Korda. It was taken on March 5, 1960, at a memorial service for victims of the La Coubre explosion and by the end of the 1960s turned the Y into a cultural icon. Korda has said that at the moment he shot the picture, he was drawn to Ys facial expression, which showed "absolute implacability" as well as anger and pain. Years later, Korda would say that the photo showed Y‘s firm and stoic character. Versions of it have been painted, printed, digitized, embroidered, tattooed, silk-screened, sculpted or sketched on nearly every surface imaginable, leading the Victoria and Albert Museum to say that the photo has been reproduced more than any other image in photography
