Hi i'm looking for dvd, book or any place where i can buy a trick, method.

I will try to describe it becasue i do not have it on YT but it was something like forcing a drink (milk for example) and then you take off from a paper bag soda can (pepsi or any other can) and when you open it you pour to glass milk from soda can. I hope you get idea.

Found this, but it isn't what you describe.

After quite a bit of searching I've come up empty.  Are there any other hints you can give such as where you saw it?  Was it on a television show?

It's simple enough to do. Whether you SHOULD do it is the question.

My advice, is to contact the guy in the video. This may be his own trick, and therefore it could be unethical to do it without his permission.
If it is marketed somewhere, or in a book/DVD, I'm sure he'll point you in the right direction.

Thanks Ray.

If the OP does get permission or a point in the right direction - I think this would be a great piece of the "magician in trouble" variety.
If I were to do this, I'd have the can in a bag, or with a paper tube around it. When "milk" is chosen, it would appear the prediction was wrong - then the can is opened and poured.

It could also make a good comedy piece, with a good magical finale. The can (with a paper tube around it), could be given to one spectator to hold. The cards could be shown to be all different canned soft drinks (so no milk). A card could be chosen (forced) and known only to the second spectator.
The magician would then recap the scenario, and stress that the can (prediction) has been held by the spectator throughout etc, then ask the second spectator to name the soft drink they are "thinking of". You could get a lot of by play and laughs when "milk" is named - confusion, you could look through the cards in puzzlement etc.
The ending would then come as a complete (and magical) surprise.

You could extend Jim's idea with a "McCombical Deck" sort of routine - after showing the cards are all different, you distract your volunteer and switch the cards for another packet - you show the audience (but not the volunteer) that these ALL say Pepsi, and you show them your Pepsi prediction.  So the audience thinks they are in on the trick - but when you reveal your prediction the volunteer denies it is correct and shows he chose Milk.  Now the audience is as confounded as you are!   Then you open the Pepsi can and pour the milk from it to magically make your prediction correct.

This way you get two magical moments and lots of comedy.

(This is all continuing to suppose that the basic effect has been published or is purchasable.)

This is the one. I love this finally idea Robin. It looks really funny and magical.

Some years ago, during a barbecue party in summer time, I did a funny magic act with a can. Firstly, behind everybody´s back, I took a unopened can and scratched and dented it a little bit, so it looked like a used (drunk) can. I also stained it with Coke to get even sticky. Finally I used a permanent black marker to paint the unopened entrance of the can, so it really looked like a used can. I put it inside a litter near the barbecue.
When everybody were eating, enjoying the afternoon, I said "I want to drink something." Someone ofered me to go for a Coke, but I told: "wait!" And I looked around, saw the litter, took the can, did some showmanship, pantomimes... And opened the apparent opened can and drank...
It was quite funny look at the faces of my friends...

Wow!
I've youtubed it and I'm astonished!

If I remember right, it was in the summer of 2008. A friend of mine showed me a domestic video on youtube about a guy doing what I described, but without explain the method. So, I thought about my own rudimentary method just to do it one day...
But, I'm gobsmacked with Healed and Sealed. The detail of the can spreading out is outrageous!
