I'm definitely hesitat with anything that takes over scroll, but this is definitely well done.

2nd on the hesitancy. Smooth scrolling / parallax can look amazing when it works well; but often devolves into a jittery, unresponsive mess; even on multi-billion dollar sites. If they couldn't get it right how am I supposed to?

It's something I'm definitely always hesistant with as well, especially changing the speed of the scrolling behaviour itself. It can look good on aesthetically pleasing sites, but I'd probably not bother reading any text that's on there.
