The real acoustic version of The Saddest Song?

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to find a version of The Ataris’ The Saddest Song that features just the two acoustic guitars, as played in the video? The acoustic version I found on the iTunes Music Store has a piano and a string section playing along, too. I like the starkness of just the two guitars from the video version; it really makes the song, well, sadder, if that is possible.

And if this song/video isn’t a dead-on testament to how devastating the selfishness of divorce is to kids, I’m not sure if there is one.
